This KM-EQ4 mount includes a dual saddle as standard, built-in holder for polar scope, a latitude adjuster with micrometer scale, an azimuth polar-alignment adjuster, aluminium setting circles, manual slow-motion tracking controls, enlarged bubble level and steel tubular tripod legs.
Metal Legs, and a tripod tray that you simple drop in and tighten. Very easy to set up. Lighter than competitor mounts.
The equivalent in EQ Mounts would be the other EQ5 Heavy Manual Mount however it is a single saddle unit. Note that we both use the term ‘Medium’ and ‘Heavy’ mount. We would classify this as a Medium mount when it comes to weight – but competitors like to rate the other EQ3 as a ‘heavy’ mount, so in that sense, we would be quite comfortable rating it as a heavy duty mount.
The KT7 tripod are made from 38/32mm tubular steel legs in black, extended from 75cm to 120cm height with triangle accessory tray to strengthen stability of the tripod.
