mount using a pair of tube rings. (Usually included with a telescope.

adjustable in height from 71cm to 123cm. The mount can carry instrument
weights up to approximately 5kgs. The AZ-3 itself weighs approx. 3.9kgs

is also possible to attach instruments with camera tripod thread (such
as cameras, spotting scopes, binoculars with tripod adaptor, ...). For
this you need the AZ3 photo adaptor which is available separately.
