SCIENTIFIC PROJECTS

Scientificial Projects

support science

More than 20 years ago we began working on a robotic telescope system developed specifically for the discovery of exo-planets. The project ran under the name HAT (Hungarian Automated Telescope), in those in cooperation with Harvard University, now replaced by Princeton University. The HATnet and HATsouth projects have discovered nearly 140 exo-planets. In addition, we participate in the mechanical part of BlackGem, a project aimed at researching gravity waves. We use our scientific research expertise in our products developed for everyday users.

WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT
FORNAX MOUNTS?

I’ve been working with Fornax Mount’s LighTrack series since their first model. And it was love at first sight or at first track, actually. It fits in my hand luggage when I fly, it offers crazy accurate tracking and it’s built by people who love the night sky.
Lightrack has been a great tool in the development of my landscape astrophotography projects, allowing me up to 6 minutes exposures without star trails. As a landscape astrophotographer I recommend the Lightrack for the production of your astronomical images.
The Fornax 51 is an extremly good mount, it has a really great value for the money. It has no backlash, and reacts immediately to guiding corrections on both axes. Tracking is very smooth, periodic error is also in a smooth +/- 5" range. Head weights 28kgs (62lbs), load capacity is up to 50kgs (110lbs).
