Software Bisque - Classic Paramount MyT (Mighty) EQ Mount - Tripod Not Included
The Software Bisque Paramount MyT Robotic German Equatorial mount is the most compact and portable option in the Bisque Paramount EQ mount series with a instrument capacity of 50 pounds.
Despite the smaller physical size and lower total payload capacity, the Paramount MyT incorporates virtually every feature found in the larger MEII and MX+ mounts from Bisque and uses the identical Motors and Computerized Control System as the MEII and MX+.
Zero backlash, 30 arc second pointing accuracy using TPoint telescope modeling software, and a maximum of 7 arc seconds peak-to-peak periodic error prior to correction.
The Paramount MyT, weighs just 34lbs making it truly portable astroimaging to the Paramount family of research grade robotic telescope mounts and easily set up alone in the field but is equally at home in permanent installations thanks to reliably accurate performance. Add a wifi hub and control from anywhere.
Software Bisque Paramount MyT (Mighty) Robotic German Equatorial Mount
The Paramount MyT Robotic German Equatorial telescope mount, a proud member of the renowned Paramount family alongside the MEII and MX+, stands as a compact yet powerful counterpart. While it possesses a smaller physical footprint and a slightly reduced total payload capacity of 50lbs, the Paramount MyT stands shoulder to shoulder with its larger counterparts, incorporating virtually every feature found in the esteemed MEII and MX+ mounts. Remarkably, the MyT shares the same Motors and Computerized Control System as its higher-capacity siblings, ensuring that it upholds the standards of excellence set by the Paramount family.
Weighing a mere 34lbs, the Paramount MyT redefines portable astroimaging within the Paramount lineup of research-grade robotic telescope mounts. Tailored for versatility, it is equally adept for portable, semi-portable, or permanent installations. Its design, meticulously crafted from the ground up, prioritizes unsurpassed stability and performance, making it a reliable choice for astronomers on the move or those seeking a robust solution for permanent setups.
The MyT mount package includes ingenious features, such as a distribution panel on the rear of the Versa-Plate scope mounting system. This panel integrates an array of functionalities, including an integrated guider port, two USB ports, one 5.1V 1A power supply port, one 12V 1A power supply port, a pulse focuser port, and a thru-the-mount power supply cabling port. Additionally, the Mighty Mount boasts an integrated equatorial wedge that facilitates polar axis elevation adjustments ranging from 0° to 64°. For further precision, the mount features integrated polar axis azimuth adjustments of ± 7°, totaling 14°, ensuring that astronomers have the tools they need for accurate and adaptable observations.
"While the MyT is promoted as a portable Paramount, at its heart is the same control system and feature set found in its larger siblings. Indeed, when controlling the MyT from a computer there’s nothing that distinguishes it from the other Paramounts. This, in my opinion, is the MyT’s greatest strength. I’ve covered these features in detail in reviews of the Paramount MX and ME II (July 2012 and September 2014 issues, respectively). Rather than repeat that material here, you can read both reviews on the Sky & Telescope website at skypub.com/Paramount. Each review covers different aspects, features, and ways of operating the mounts, and virtually everything said in those reviews is also applicable to the MyT, including mycomments on the outstanding accuracy and precision ofthe mounts’ pointing and tracking systems. It’s one of the big reasons I was impressed with the MyT."
