AP GTO-Mach1 (mit GTOCP3 Control Box)

  • equatorial mount with servo drive motors
  • with central cable entry instrument load approx. 25kg
  • with GTO-CP3 servo motor control box and auto-compensated motor gear boxes

The control of the mount is very variable. You can control the mount via PC (Windows / Mac) and a variety of software packages (e.g. Guide, The Sky and many others) with or without ASCOM drivers, Mac computers or even with mobile smart devices.

The mount can be tracked by all autoguiders with an SBIG ST-4 output via an interface.

The mount is ready-to-use on a concrete, sturdy tubular steel column filled with concrete. There is an approximately 3m x 3m large concrete surface around the column, which is surrounded by flexibly removable wind protection nets. There is a table and two chairs, as well as 220V AC power.

The mount is equipped with a 3 “Baader clamp. An aluminum plate with 3 “rail is available, on which there are 2 parallel Losmandy 3“ clamps. This enables the inclusion of two parallel telescopes, each of which must be equipped with 3 "rails.

It is possible to bring your own instruments with you, provided that they have a connection for the 3 “Baader clamp.
