Large Newtonian Telescope - an Equatorial Mount

For those considering mounting a large Newtonian on an equatorial at a fixed-site, consider the MI-500G, MI-500G, and MI-1000G German equatorial mounts.

The MI-500 (about 200 pounds) is marginally portable for a 12-inch or 14-inch f/4 to f/7 Newtonian. The larger MI-750G (about 300 pounds) and MI-1000G require a permanant installation.

These mounts provides the rigidity and performance needed for serious astronomical observation. With cluches on both axes for easy setup, the polar assemblies feature large bronze worm gear drives with precision worms driven by quality Swiss DC servomotors.

In the German configuration, the MI-500G has a 180+ pound capacity and the MI-750G has a 250+ pound capacity. Also available in an equatorial fork configuration, the MI-500F and MI-750F are for short focus f/4 Newtonians.

All mounts comes with the the AstroPhysics GTO for full computer control.

Visit our web site for further details on the MI-500G, MI-750G, MI-1000.

Thanks for looking.
