Skywatcher SKYTEE altazimuth mount new
      #4558210 - 05/02/11 11:49 PM

Has anyone in the US seen one of these?

The only ones I can find for sale are in Europe. Looks like a mount that's pretty close to the size & capacity I'm looking for, and appears to have the right features, too... Problem is, no one that *I* can locate has ever used one...

For those who are not familiar with this mount, here's a link to a UK site...

That's a pretty neat idea. It looks as if you can mount two scopes side by side without having to have them pointed in the same direction.

Based on responses here, and no response at all from Celestron to my query, this mount appears to be vaporware...

Jan,

http://www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p4537_TS-alt-az-mount-SKYTEE-w-

Here's another link with some pictures included.This one is in Europe too though. As of today, no U.S dealer has advertised this product, so your guess is as good as mine.

Even though I am very happy with my Teegul set up, I have to admit that the SKYTEE may end in my future list.

George
