Hi all,

 

Some of you may have seen a video posted to Stellarvue's Youtube channel, in which they introduce a dual-scope version of the M2 alt-az mount. It's been a few months and I hadn't heard anything about it since, so I reached out to SV to find out when we might expect it to hit the market.

 

Vic replied and said the following:

 

"We are currently working on a series of wood tripods that will go with our mounts. Once these are released we will continue to work on a dual mount. We felt the existing dual mount we developed could be improved so we shelved it until we could invest more time in making it even more stable. Look for it in about 4-6 months."

I think I may buy one of the new tripods when they come out if they are not to expensive. I saw a photo of one in the SV newsletter. Two scopes on one mount is not my thing though.
