A telescope or binocular mount is the basic foundation upon which your optics rest. A solid mount is required in order to achieve crisp images at high magnification. While most entry and intermediate level telescopes are sold as complete systems that include a mount, a la carte purchasing of telescope mounts and optics tends to be the norm where premium level optics are concerned. This is especially true in the field of more advance astrophotography.
Altazimuth telescope mounts are useful for both terrestrial and astronomical observing due to their intuitive up-down and left-right motion.
