Omegon Mount AZ-Baby

The Omegon AZ-Baby Mount is a compact, easy-to-use Alt-Az mount for small telescopes.

Features

  • It is suitable for telescopes up to 4kg in weight, such as an 80 or 100-mm refractor, Maksutov, or spotting scope.
  • Compact and lightweight, it is perfect for holidays, astronomy and nature-watching trips.
  • It fits neatly in any suitcase and weighs only as much as a bottle of water.
  • Made entirely of machined and anodised aluminium
  • It fits any camera tripod that has a 3/8" thread
  • Large Vixen-style saddles enable you to mount your telescope quickly and easily.

Compact size

Few mounts are as small and compact as this one! It is so compact that it fits in the palm of your hand, and when you rotate it on its axes, you will be delighted with the smooth, precise movements. 

Capacity

Any suitably sized telescope fitted with a Vixen-type mounting bar can be fitted quickly and easily. Maximum payload capacity is up to around 4kg. 

Portability

For grab-and-go astronomy? On a trip to Namibia? Or to fly off to see the next solar eclipse? The Baby AZ mount is ideal for all this and fits neatly into a suitcase or bag.

Easy attachment

The mount can be fitted to any tripod with the usual 3/8" photo thread.

Perfect for grab-and-go astronomy!
10 August 2023  | 

Let me say that Iím always impressed by the quick delivery of this mount from FLO to Northern California in 5 days!

I was excited to receive this mount due to a number of reviews and recommendations for its small profile and weight. It's possible to mount the Omegon AZ-Baby on the Tele-Pod advanced aluminum tripod and fit it completely in the tripod bag ó ready to be deployed for those quick, grab-and-go observing sessions.

Payload capacity is listed at 4kg (9lbs) but I would estimate that 5kg (11lbs) would be the useful maximum payload before balancing issues arise. Mileage may vary due to payload and tripod of use.

This mount is aimed for the visual observer wanting to deploy their setups immediately. So far Iíve used a Celestron C80ED, Orion ED66 CF, and the Takahashi TS-50 all with ease using a number of heavy accessories and eyepiece configurations. The bearings are especially impressive by how smooth they are. Once my telescope is balanced, motion can be moved by the slight push of my fingertip.

I was very impressed given the convenience of it being assembled with my tripod, its size, and included clamp that I decided that it would permanently replace both my TeleVue Tele-Pod and Berlebach Castor II mounts altogether.

One minor nitpick I have is the color of the installed clamp. While it wasnít black as advertised, my delivered clamp was silver. However, this is purely cosmetic and doesnít hinder the functionality of the mount.

Overall, 5 stars all around! Thank you, FLO!
