Hi Folks
Can a Gibraltar 5 head be mounted on the older(post) style Gibraltar? Kinda wranglin my way up to a NP127 and was wondering if I can use my current Gibraltar tripod and upgrade to a G5 head.

Hi Bernie, for this purpose televue has what is called a "Televue Gibraltar upgrade kit" which is found here http://www.buytelescopes.com/search.asp?go=1&adv=&q=gibraltar&s=&searchbtn=Search at Anacortes. I used the combo on a Tak 5" not that solid on a long tube should be better on a shorter tube although other alt-az mounts would certainly be better.
