Is there an alt-az option I can mount on my AVX tripod base? I'd like to have something for a quick set up without having to unpack the head, etc.

 

Thanks!

Where there's a will there's usually a way. If there *isn't one specifically made for the tripod's mounting point, (can't help you there, sorry...)  you *could probably fabricate an adapter plate.

I believe one of SkyWatcher's AZ-4 heads will fit (maybe with minimal mods)...problem is finding one.
