The HALO is a Setting Circle combined with a Leveling Base, that is used to set the Azimuth coordinates of a Dobsonian Telescope.  The HALO makes finding exciting celestial objects easy and FUN! HALO's are machined from Extira, a proprietary composite wood product that is strong, light, and virtually weatherproof. They are capable of supporting several times the weight of the Dobsonian Telescopes they are designed to support.  The included Alti-Gauge makes setting altitude coordinates a breeze, and the included Red Dwarf astronomy light illuminates the degree ring without destroying your dark adapted vision.
