The new M-Zero has been designed to revolutionize the world of portable astronomy. The unique and innovative design, the light weight and the small dimensions, the greater versatility and higher quality make it the perfect tool for the traveling astronomy. All with just 10 kg total weight (including the T-Pod 90 tripod) and 8 kg load capacity, which fits into a medium-sized trolley for safe transport also by air.
The M-zero is more than one mount: a standard equatorial when used with longer optics, a single arm with the great benefit of non requiring meridian flip using compact optics, and an Alt-azimuthal mount for visual astronomy: all with only 10 kg of total weight (including the T-Pod 90 tripod) and 8 kg loading capacity, that ‑ ts in a medium-sized trolley for safe transportation while traveling.
Thanks to the new Dual-DEC system, it is possible to install a second telescope in the opposite side of the declination axis. Considering this capability it is possible to use a great range of optics starting from a small (4-5 kg/8.8-11 lb) refractor up to a double setup with a total weight of 12-13 kg/26.4-28.6 lb, obtaining performances so good to get it over the need of a bigger mount.
The combination of the brand new StarGo GoTo-System with several esclusive functions, the innovative Fast-Reverse technology (belt drive system) and the top-quality construction allows high level performances and auto-guided long-exposure astrophotography without time limits – even with telescopes with focal length up to 2m,(8″ SCT & 8″ RC). The Avalon StarGo GoTo-System has been totally designed and manufactured by Avalon to meet all needs, from the beginner to the professional photographer.
The virtually zero maintenance, the long lasting materials used and the possibility to easily update the StarGO firmware and software allow the M-zero to be always ready to use, up to date, competitive and extremely reliable!
The M-zero can be balanced, in most cases, with less than 1 kg/2.2 lb counterweight due to the possibility of placing the declination arm in different positions relative to the right ascension arm. The M-zero and the T-pod 90, requiring limited room, may be easily arranged inside a medium size carry on case allowing a convenient setup for air traveling astro-amateurs.
The polar alignment can be performed by using the polar scope mounted on the RA body that can be rotated to the upper position for a comfortable adjustment of the Polar Alignment. The standard kit for the polar alignment is provided with polarscope, support stand provided of scope fixing knobs and dovetail attack with fixing grip knob and illuminator cap provided of red LED and connection cable to the StarGO.
