I don't know what sort of mount it is - it swings round rather clumsily in the horizontal plane, but has has a fine adjustment in the vertical plane - I guess that's an altitude-azimuth arrangement?
Maybe you could explain to me how the Equitorial mount works?
I'm a little disappointed with the mount TBH, but the telescope itself seems pretty good.
As for the telescope, it says "D=76mm F=700mm" on the side, and it's a reflector.
Can you tell I'm an amateur?! ;D
Luckily my garden has a very wide and unobstructed view of the sky from south-east to almost north, so there's plenty of stuff to look at.
