New AZ Pronto Mount & Tripod.
The Sky-Watcher AZ PRONTO is a lightweight, highly portable Alt-Azimuth mount for easy, no-fuss, grab-and-go astronomy.
Constructed from cast aluminium and suitable for use with small telescopes, up to 3kg in weight, fitted with a regular 45mm dovetail bar.
The aluminium tripod legs can be extended and clamped in any position via integral leg locks.
Supplied with two flexible slow-motion cables, one for vertical and one for horizontal smooth fine motion control. The cables can be positioned in two different positions on each axis, making it convenient to control both refractor and reflector telescopes.
The mount can also be moved around each axis manually for rapid panning and elevation adjustments, so tracking moving targets manually is easy.
Suitable for both terrestrial observations and stargazing.

Very efficient service, this arrived within 48 hours of ordering. This mount is solid, the slow motion controls smooth. It is perfect as a grab and go mount for a Zenith star 71 that I want to be electronic free. There is a lit to be said for electronic free visual astronomy, I wish somebody would make manual mounts for larger telescopes.
A bit disappointed if Iím honest

Not with FLO, as the item arrived very well packaged a couple of days after ordering it. I find both the horizontal and vertical axis to be quite stiff when moving them either by hand and with the slow motion knobs. The slow motion both have a loose point and a quite tight point as they are turned no matter what I do. Itís not like Iím trying to mount a big scope on it, it just has a 60mm refractor on it. So overall I am a bit disappointed with the kit which is a shame as I normally like SkyWatcher products.
