Product description

German "go to" equatorial mount, compact sizes, exclusive 10Micron HPS technology with absolute encoders and high performances motor drives; payload 25 Kg (55 lbs).

The GM1000HPS mount is built for the demanding observer using photographic instruments up to a weight of 25kg – 55 lbs (counterweights not included). Movements are driven by two servo brushless motors, with timing belt reduction having zero backlash. Both axes feature a classic worm – wormwheel pairing. The wormwheels are made of bronze (B14), with a diameter of 125mm and 250 teeth, while the worms are built of alloy steel with a diameter of 20mm. The axes themselves are made of 30mm diameter alloy steel, for the maximum rigidity. The double dovetail mounting plate guarantees the maximum compatibility with many telescope manufacturers.
