Single-arm compact fork mount head may be used in alt-az or equatorial orientation with lightweight scopes such as the Borg Series 80 or Mini Borg scopes. Use the Series 80 tube holder and adapter E set [5503] or universal attachment block [3102] for direct attachment of a scope with 1/4"-20 screws or Takahashi tube holders.

The standard tripod interface provided is a 3/8"-16 hole for mounting on standard photographic tripods. The fork head may also be mounted on tripods with a 1/4-20 screw with a user-supplied adapter which is available at camera stores.

When used with Borg's ultra-light SWII tripod, a special adapter is required.

The mount may be moved rapidly by releasing the light gray clutch knobs or by turning the dark gray slow motion knobs. The slow motion shafts also allow the attachment of user-supplied flex shafts.

When used in equatorial orientation, a latitude scale aids in setting the fork tilt.
