About this product
Part Number: M6-AZMIUTH
Astrodymium Upgraded Azimuth Bolts - M6x1
Make polar alignment easier and more comfortable with these custom made azimuth bolts.
The larger knobs make adjustments easier & more precise. A wider range of motion is also possible, because of the more ergonomic nature of these replacements.
The longer thread length compared to stock bolts also assists during polar alignment, by giving you a larger adjustment range in azimuth.
Comes in a set of two.
The following is a list of mounts that have been confirmed to work with the upgraded bolts. Most mounts that use the following threads for azimuth will work as well: M6-1.0mm.
- CEM25P & CEM26
- iEQ45 Pro
- Vixen Super Polaris
- HEQ5/Orion Sirius
- Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer

Much easier to use and way better quality than the originals.
Incredibly useful on HEQ5 pro mount

They replace the two azimuth knobs on the mount the ones that rotate it left and right when initially aligning. I used to wear gloves to get enough traction on the original knobs to move things, now I don't. These make it so much easier. I should have got these when I first got my HEQ5 pro mount. Note - I added a small amount of grease on the thread when putting them in to keep them free moving long term.
If you have an HEQ5 then buy these…

They are just bolts but make a huge difference when polar aligning, ergonomic and slightly longer than the supplied Azimuth Bolts they make the whole process more precise and are super-comfortable on the hands in comparison.
