This combo package includes the Altair RC300-TT V2 Truss Tube Astrograph, with a SkyWatcher EQ8 mount, and our British-made Starbase field tripod, .

STARBASE Field Tripod: The UK made Starbase CNC machined tripod is approx. 12kg lighter than the standard EQ8 tripod. It forms an extremely rigid structure with a beautiful finish, perfect for long focal length imaging. The tripod legs can be fine-adjusted for levelling and then locked down - an essential feature for long focal length imaging. What's more the Starbase tripod can be used with many other mounts either direct-fit, or with an adapter, so it's a "keeper" for portable imaging or visual observing.

SkyWatcher EQ8 Mount: The new heavy duty Equatorial mount from Skywatcher, with a head weight of 25.3kg, and a very high 50kg payload capacity. It ships with 2x 10kg counterweights allowing it to operate near maximum capacity right out of the box. An impresive equipment case is included. A polar scope is not standard with the EQ8, but is available optionally when ordering.

EQ8 Adapter: For smoother, easier rotation and super-precise polar alignment, a smooth surfaced CNC machined adapter plate is included for your EQ8 mount, though the EQ8 will actually fit onto the Starbase tripod without an adapter.

Other accessories: Camera, flattener, autoguiding equipment: Please contact us for your requirements.
