Fornax 51/52


The newest series of Fornax Telescope Mounts of German Equatorial type for precise positioning and tracking large telescopes up to 40kg. Although there are examples of use of even heavier telescopes, the recommended maximum load is 40kg - 50kg for this telescope mount.

"The Fornax 52 is a good mount, it has a gerat value for the money. It has no backlash, and reacts immediately to guiding corrections on both axes." (Iván Éder)

Robust Body 

The mechanism of this extremely sturdy mount is being made of aluminium alloy, cast aluminium, bronze and stainless steel. The worm and the electric motor are located in an enclosed, sealed space (waterproof and dust-proof), making it less sensitive to dust and temperature fluctuations, and is practically maintenance free. Thanks to the ingenious solution of the inner drive mechanism this telescope mount doesn't suffer from any backlash.

High accurate tracking


Typical periodic error (when not guided) is less than +/- 6 arc seconds (one period on the worm gear is 7.5 minutes long!) When using auto guiding, the mount reacts immediately, so corrections are very fast and completely free of play. This is the ultimate solution for astrophotography with a high quality/price ratio.This model is suitable for both observatories and to carry it around.

URSA MINOR - MC3


This is a versatile telescope controler electronics. This equipment is the optimal choice for all medium to large telescope mounts. It controls the The built-in stepper motors of the mount, allowing the object positioning and tracking. To use this device, you should connect it to a computer, which is running planetarium software (eg, Ursa Minor Pro) or use a hand-held remote control. The device can be easily adapted to most astronomical telescope mounts. With the included (free download) software you can adjust the gear ratio, the current level of the motors and many other parameters. Thanks to the versatile configuration options the motors are running very fine. This capability makes it especially useful for useing at very good atmospheric conditions where the image in the telescope is very sensitive to any kind of small errors.
