Alt-Azimuth Mounts

The Alt-Azimuth mount is a simple design that consist of two moving components, a base with a rotatable axis for horizontal (panning) movements, and a single or dual arm with a rotatable axis for vertical (tilting) movements. The axes housings can be comprised by simple smooth friction padding material, bearings or can be more sophisticated with a worm wheel/worm screw drive gears mechanism with flex cables control.
