Details

Great mechanical quality

The Losmandy GM8 is completely in aluminum and stainless steel with black anodizing. Thanks to large diameter axial bearing it provides a high load capacity (15 Kg) with a head weight of only 10 kg. The adjustment of latitude (possible from 6 to 68 degrees), thanks to the special design, can be done with a single knob and with great precision; also the azimuth adjustment is done with a single screw with a range of +/- 8.5 degrees. On both axes there are setting circles with laser engraving, grading is 6 minutes in RA and 2 degrees DEC.



 


The GM8 mount allows you to connect telescopes with both Vixen and Losmandy type dovetail bars, thanks to the special double clamp. Dual supported, ball bearing housed ground High Precision Brass Worm. The counterweight bar is removable and it has a large diameter (32mm) to prevent bending.


 

 

 

Gemini 2 computer

The latest Gemini has been completely redesigned with a more powerful CPU, more memory and an interactive color touch screen for versatility and ease of use. The new full color graphic touch screen clearly displays all functions and the classic four-button pattern for guiding, centering, moving and slewing (both on the touch screen and a tactile membrane on the rear). Gemini 2 offers multi star alignment/modeling for accurate pointing on both sides of meridian and GOTO rates up to 8 degs/sec (GM8). DC Servos have improved accuracy with higher torque and smoother tracking than stepper motors. GPS-compatible (with optional receiver), Gemini 2 has a database of over 40.000 objects and offers 2 USB ports (Virtual COM to PC, ASCOM or planetarium program), permanent PEC correction, Auto-Guide port (TTL), Polar Align Assist, Permanent Dec Backlash compensation and a lot of other advanced features.
