With a 40 pounds payload capacity, the Takahashi EM-200 Temma II Mount is an excellent GoTo mount for virtually any telescope within the payload range. The highly creative design makes it quite appealing looking but functional as well. Takahashi has included RA and DEC stepper motors directly implemented in the mounting and provide cyclic errors lower than +/- 5 arc seconds. With the addition of the polar alignment telescope with an illuminated reticle, the observer can easily align the scope with an accuracy of 2 minutes of arc due to the altitude and azimuth precision adjusters included the EM-200 Mount.
There are two voltage options of 12v or 24v to run the motor as well as slewing speeds of 700x at 12v and 700x at 24v. When running on 12 volts, the observer can use the hand controller. A hand controller and power cable for 12V/220V battery connection is available with the package. If the user wants to run GoTo, a separate PC will be needed.
