The Sky-Watcher AZ5 is an easy to use, grab-and-go telescope mount for visual astronomy and daytime terrestrial observations. Constructed from cast aluminium and designed to attach small telescopes up to 5kg in weight, via a regular 44mm dovetail bar.

360° worm and wheel gears on both axes deliver precise positioning and following of objects in the sky. The mount can be quickly panned and tilted manually. The angle of the upper support arm can be set in six different positions.
