“… the AZ4 does feel reassuringly solid. There are easy to grip friction clutches on both axes and there’s a stout, 29cm-long panning handle that may be screwed into one of two ergonomically sited points separated by a 90-degree angle for additional control. A rugged Vixen-style dovetail-mounting block ensures compatibility with a wide range of optical tubes up to around eight inches in diameter. It’s quite feasible to mount a six-inch Newtonian on this rig. For spotting-scope users with a mounting-point on the underside, an L-shaped bracket is also included. Another nice feature is the altitude and azimuth scales marked in one-degree divisions — a nice aid to locating celestial objects if you have a Palm or Pocket-PC planetarium program.” Ade Ashford – Astronomy Now, Dec 08
