We are thrilled to offer our Mach2GTO Universal Robotic mount that sets a new standard for portable telescope mounts. It is so easy to use that you will be up and running in no time at all and the mount will simply disappear into the background. No fuss, no bother.
Universal Robotic means that Mach2 fulfills all of the requirements of a robotic mount for automated operation for imaging, satellite tracking, comet tracking, star survey work and others. In addition, the clutches allow it to be used manually for star sweeping. It is so easy to use that it can be set up quickly in the field with minimal effort and no complicated startup routines. The encoders keep track of the axis positions at all times whether parked, unparked, power on or power off.
Polar Align, Power Up and Go!
Renishaw Absolute Encoder for the ultimate in precise tracking - no SDE or random errors above 1/4 arc sec. Extended Temperature option available.
Absolute encoder provides near zero tracking error and resists outside influences such as wind and cable drag
Precision balancing via the clutches without taking the worm gears out of mesh
Brushless Micro-step Servo System for precise and whisper-quiet slewing and tracking
Dual-model pointing and tracking rate correction even with the telescope in the counterweight UP position. using Astro-Physics Command Center (APCC) Pro version, included
Custom tracking rates in both axes (for asteroids, comets, satellites)
Auto-Adjusting gear mesh
Image all night without meridian flip, as long as your scope clears
Daytime polar alignment is now simplified since we have encoders to set the positions
Precision azimuth adjuster with rotating base
Built-in bubble level
Right-angle polar alignment scope (optional)
Internal USB 3.0 cable
Fully supported enhanced ASCOM driver
Threaded for QHY Polemaster AP900 adapter (shown in photo)
Portable – 42 lbs
Operate with 12V battery or up to 24V power supply
