From 0° till 70° mount
Avalon Instruments introduce the M-Zero for low latitude areas till 0°. Light weight, small dimensions the M-Zero LHQ comes with four range degrees available:
1 - 0° - 15°
2 - 15° - 45°
3 - 30° - 55°
4 - 55° - 70°
The M-Zero LHQ is the perfect mount for low latitude area and traveling astronomy. NOTE: the Alt/az configuration is not available in the M-Zero LHQ mount.
6 dec arm positions on the RA axis available
As well as the M-Zero standard versions, the M-Zero LHQ allow to move the DEC arm on the RA axis in 6 different positions on depending on the user setup, to allow a fine balancing by using the less counterweight possible (in most cases, with less than 1 kg/2.2 lb counterweight).
Double Telescope Setup
Thanks to the Dual-DEC system or by assembling the optional X-guider accessory, it is possible to mount 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. Thanks to StarGO GoToControl System the M-Zero can be controlled by smartphone and tablet via WiFi connection.
No maintenance requested
Practically zero maintenance, long-lasting materials and ability to easily update the StarGO firmware and software allow the M-Zero to be always ready for use, updated, competitive and extremely reliable!
Technology and Innovation
The top quality manufacturing level, the Fast-Reverse Belt Drive System with zero backlash and the StarGO GoTo control system allow excellent performance in the photographic use, with guided long exposure images (see our suggested PHD2 guide parameters table), even while using very long focal length telescopes.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.
