Product Description

PlaneWave Ascension 200 German Equatorial Mount

 

 

PlaneWave Instruments is proud to introduce the Ascension 200HR German Equatorial Mounts. This german equatorial mount is designed to give peerless performance with up to 275 pounds of payload, using 360-tooth, 12.1 inch diameter RA and DEC gears, and built-in homing sensors on each axis. The 200HR is supplied with permanent periodic error correction and a hand pad. The Ascension 200HR is additionally equipped with state-of-the-art high-resolution encoders on each axis that correct for residual mechanical errors including PE and DEC backlash, thereby enabling long, unguided exposures.

The Ascension 200HR is an excellent mount for both permanent observatories and portable applications. Modularity makes the mount easily transportable for field work, breaking down into three components.

The heaviest component is 96 pounds. The PlaneWave Instruments Ascension 200HR mount is beautifully machined and finished, featuring powder-coated aluminum with stainless steel complements. Included:

  • EQ Head
  • Sidereal Tech Control System
  • Control Software and Driver
