The EXOS Nano is a light-duty German Equatorial mount and tripod designed to quickly and easily accept small scopes, such as a small Mak-Cassegrain, small Refractor or small Solar Scope and of course, the ED80mm. Lightweight. Short, fast Newtonians will also match up nicely with the Explore FirstLight EXOS Nano mount.

Good tripod

I bought the AstroMaster 114AZ in 2019 and I bought this tripod to replace the original that came with it. Because of the poor quality of the original, I used it only once. The FL-EXOSNANOT1–00 is a good tripod and not that expensive. So far I've used it a few times and it's night and day when compared to the original. On top of that, the service I got from the staff was great and they were very pleasant to talk to. They were knowledgeable and offered valuable advice.
