Avalon Instrument M-Tre StarGo2 Pro Astronomical Telescope Mount
M-Tre StarGo2 Pro
HIGH RESOLUTION ABSOLUTE ENCODER ON BOTH RA/DEC AXIS
With the High Resolution ABSOLUTE ENCODER on both RA/DEC axis, is possible to have accurate pointing and keep the mount orientation also after a shutdown.
Thanks to the Dual Dec option, it is possible to use the second telescope as a counterweight itself, allowing a significative reduction of the counterweights use.
The possibilities to move the DEC arm towards the RA axis (with the same mechanism and concept of the M-zero, M-uno and M-due mounts), facilitate the balancing procedure allowing to use as less as counterweight possible or even without any counterweight at all.
Slew Speed: up to 10° / sec
The mount is controlled by the StarGo2 Pro, a real All in one astrophotografic setup management system for Mount, CCD cameras, Focuser and comes with the following features:
Raspberry pi 4 based
Compatible with all the Linux astronomical software (Kstar, Stellarium, Carte du Ciel etc.)
4” Touch Screen Display on StarGo2 Pro case embedded
