Vixen presents the Berlebach Caster Alt-Azimuth Dual-Mount Head (tripod sold separately). This specialized alt-azimuth mount head allows you to attach two telescopes to your mount at the same time! It is designed for mounting binoculars, spotting scopes, telescopes, and cameras. This means you can mount a camera for wide field photography alongside your astronomy telescope or even mount a pair of telescopes. For solar astronomers, it means they can have their dedicated solar telescope, with an H-Alpha or similar filter, next to a regular astronomy telescope using a white light filter to focus on the sun spots. The castor head is made of sold black anodized aluminum. The Dual Mount Head has the option of accepting a second dovetail head or counterweight bar. To add a counterweight bar, all you need is to remove one of the clamps and install the counterweight bar in its place, to better balance your mount if you use a larger telescope.
The Berlebach Castor Dual Mount Head is designed for a pair of smaller telescopes. This mount head attaches to any tripod with a 3/8″ thread, mounting bolt.
- Easy to grip knobs for simple friction control of both axes

- Location to connect a second Dovetail Clamp
- Counter balance Bar for a quick release coupling for a camera or spotting scope
