Meade's manual LX70 German Equatorial Mount features brass worm-gear drives on both axes for smooth tracking performance, aluminum setting circles and a built-in leveling bubble. The large-knob slow-motion control cables make it easy to track objects on frigid nights when wearing gloves is a necessity. Push-pull adjustments on both the declination and right ascension axes assist in fine-tuning the polar alignment; while the built-in latitude scale will help you dial in your site location quickly. The LX70 mount includes a Vixen-style dovetail for mounting optical tubes up to 20 pounds, an adjustable-height stainless steel tripod, and an accessory tray with holders for both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces.
