Details

The Orion Atlas EQ-G Equatorial Mount has been a standard in affordable, astrophotography-capable, GoTo mounts for nearly a decade. Now Orion is proud to announce the enhanced, more versatile Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G GoTo Mount. Certain to become a favorite among intermediate to experienced observers and astrophotographers, this three-in-one smart mount not only operates in equatorial GoTo mode holding one telescope, but also in Altazimuth GoTo & Tracking mode while holding one or even two different telescopes. Control the Atlas Pro via the included illuminated hand controller, or robotically with your PC/laptop, or even wirelessly from your iOS mobile device with optional Orion StarSeek software and Wi-Fi module (sold separately). 

  • Three-in-one GoTo mount can operate in GoTo Equatorial mode holding one telescope, or in GoTo Altazimuth mode holding one or two different telescopes
  • Capable of holding a 44-pound telescope payload -- ideal for any observational or astrophotographic pursuits
  • Accurate belt-driven stepper motor drive system can locate any of over 42,000 celestial curiosities with a pointing accuracy of 5 arc-minutes and a tracking precision of 0.1436 arc-second steps
  • Features closed-loop electronics to maintain alignment even after an inadvertent bump or nudge
  • Features dual-width dovetail saddle for use with narrow or wide dovetail plates, 1" diameter retractable counterweight shaft, securely threaded power input jack and threaded DC cable, built-in autoguider port, PPEC capability, 9 slew speeds, and North/South hemisphere polar alignment scope

 

 

 

 

Product Series

Worthy of the Most Demanding Observing and Imaging Applications The new standard in affordable, heavy-duty GoTo mounts, the Atlas EQ-G is now available with GoTo or dual-axis (non-GoTo) hand controller. The mount supports tube assemblies of up to 40 lbs. and boasts 2"diameter stainless steel legs. Internal DC stepper motors offer nine slew rates ranging from 2x to 800x sidereal and three tracking rates: sidereal, lunar, and solar. With the GoTo controller, select from 13,436 objects and command the mount to automatically pinpoint them. Backlash compensation and programmable PEC provide the responsiveness for guiding and the tracking accuracy needed for astrophotography. There's also a jack for a CCD autoguider. Mount includes RS-232 interface cable, two 11-lb. counterweights, illuminated polar-axis scope, and 13" dovetail mounting bar. Requires external 12-volt DC power source or AC-to-DC wall adapter (see Suggested Accessories). Weighs 54 lbs., not including counterweights.
