Is your bulky telescope mount keeping you from doing what you love – stargazing under the darkest night sky?

Now there’s a faster and easier way to get your telescope to the darkest stargazing places.

The TTS-160 telescope mount is for amateur astronomers who are looking for precision, stability and convenience. Portable, stable and easy to use – it’s the perfect mount for stargazing and astrophotography.


TTS-160 is portable. Stargaze when and where you want.

Amazingly easy to carry – the TTS-160 Panther telescope mount is ideal for spontaneous viewing in the backyard, on holiday or far from the city lights.




TTS-160 is stable.

Enjoy precision tracking with a stable mount that’s built to last.

Incredibly solid and precise, the TTS-160 Panther telescope mount makes stargazing and astrophotography relaxing, easy and fun.


TTS-160 is fast.

Spend more time viewing and less time getting ready.

The starry night is just minutes away. Fast set up, balancing and alignment save you time.


The TTS-160 Panther telescope mount is flexible and convenient.

Whether you have small, large or many telescopes or traveling near or far, you can configure the mount as your needs require:

  • Traveling light? Configure the mount to fit with a smaller telescope so it takes up a minimum amount of space.

  • Planning an astrophoto safari with your biggest and best telescope? No problem. The Panther telescope mount can be configured for that trip, too.

  • Do you have several large telescopes? You can configure the Panther mount for visual observations using several large telescopes as well.




Compatible stable platform provides a solid mount for all your viewing and photographic needs.

Unlike other alt-az mounts the standard 3-inch dovetail saddle plate makes it possible to mount many different telescopes. For long exposure astrophotography the telescope rOTAtor is easily installed.

Point and shoot for easy imaging with the TTS telescope rOTAtor.

The telescope rOTAtor rotates the entire optical tube assembly and any piggybacked equipment for efficient long exposure astrophotograhy.
Set up in just minutes without GPS, geographical coordinates, time or data input, mount leveling or polar alignment needed.


Bring only the parts you need for your observations.

For visual observations just bring the mount. For long exposure astrophotography, bring the telescope rOTAtor.


Out the door and on your way in minutes!
