A simple, elegant form of an alt-azimuth mount made to carry a Newtonian reflector was popularized by John Dobson in the late 1970's. In its simplest form, the Dobsonian mount consists of a box which allows the optical tube assembly to pivot in altitude, while the box itself is swivelled on a base in azimuth. Normally such mounts are moved by hand rather than motor driven. Their main advantages are low cost, fast easy setup and ability to make a mount big enough for larger tubes.
