If you want a steady view when using your scope, then a mount and/or tripod will support the scope while you enjoy the views. These do vary though and it is a good idea to have a look at what is available so that you will be able to choose the one that will suit your needs the best.It is worth thinking about the different factors that you want. A couple of important things to consider include whether it is lightweight. You want it to be light enough to carry if you want it to be portable. It is also important to think about how durable it will be considering what it is made from. Lastly consider how easy it is to use. It can be worth thinking about whether you need an accessories tray on the tripod and if you are getting a mount whether you want it to have a motor, be computerised or manual.
