The EasyView Arm opens the sky to disabled observers.
6 River Ct., Webster, MA 01570
With its EasyView Arm (starting at $149) for alt-azimuth telescope mounts, Universal Astronomics conquers the difficulties that wheelchair-bound observers face when using telescopes. The arm’s innovative double-jointed design allows panning across half of the sky without the observer having to move to the other side of the tripod. Light- and medium-duty EasyView Arm models are available, and both can be easily assembled by users who are physically challenged. The EasyView Arm Light includes 10 pounds (4.5 kg) of counterweights and can bear up to 15-pound telescopes, while the EasyView Arm Medium can accommodate scopes weighing up to 30 pounds and comes with 15 pounds of counterweights.
