Product Description

AM5_01AM5_02The traditional equatorial mount requires heavy counterweights. It can be very difficult to keep balance in RA and DEC directions, also inconvenient for transit and storage, which bring the amateur astrophotographers a lot of pain when they are out for imaging. Some of the strain wave geared drive mounts are relatively simple in functions, insufficient in load capacity, and also not very stable in use.Mount body: The internal structure of the body optimized with the strain wave gear reducer and synchronous belt, bringing more accurate control and an amazing reduction ratio of 300:1.Astronomy-Dedicated strain wave gear: ZWO jointly developed the strain wave gearing system with well-known domestic manufacturers based on the actual needs of astrophotographers. It comes with very low periodic errors, smooth gearing and high torque. The guiding accuracy is 0.5 - 0.8 arc seconds, which makes the AM5 mount extremely suitable for astrophotography.AM5_06%.5kg Mount Weight, Large Load Capacity: While the portability is very important, the stability is also essential in use. We don't blindly pursue the lightweight of the mount body; we are more so along the lines of stability for entire use.AM5_08Equatorial Mount/Altazimuth Mount. Switch method: APP or hand controller.
