Product Description

Software Bisque Paramount MyT (Mighty) Robotic German Equatorial Mount

The Paramount MyT (say "mighty") Robotic German Equatorial telescope mount is the little brother to the Paramount MEII and Paramount MX+ world class mounts. Other than its smaller physical size and lower total payload capacity, the Paramount MyT incorporates virtually every feature found in the larger (and costlier) MEII and MX+. In fact, the MyT uses the identical Motors and Computerized Control System as the MEII and MX+. The Paramount MyT, by weighing only 34lbs and boasting a payload capacity of 50lbs, brings truly portable astroimaging to the Paramount family of research grade robotic telescope mounts. In short, the MyT has been designed and refined from the base up to provide unsurpassed stability and performance for portable, semi-portable, or permanent installations.

Further refinements in the MyT mount package include an ingenious distribution panel on the rear of the Versa-Plate scope mounting system. It includes 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. An integrated equatorial wedge allows polar axis elevation adjustments from 0° to 64°. Further, the Mighty Mount features integrated polar axis azimuth adjustments of ± 7° (14° total).

 
Review:

"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."
