Ecuatorial Mount HoO LongNeck1
Our aim is to provide items of higher quality as of those which can be found on the market. This is why we started developing a parallactical mount Made in Germany. Our Mount HoO LN1 is a 100% product based on German technological engineering know-how. All parts are high standard CNC machined and manufactured in Germany. The mount cross can be splitted in order to provide a better transporting. Such advantage is highly appreciated in field since heavy carriage can be avoided. To assemble the mount just put the DEC axis on its head, fix it with the hand knobs. No further steps required. Ready! You don´t need any tools to do this. The included mount ground plate allows you to set your mount on each pillar or tripod.
The dimmed illuminated Polar alignment scope needs no own cable assembly, here works a 9V battery. The polar height assembly works over a ergonomical big hand wheel. All positions can be arrived precise and comfortable. All screws are Stainless Steel plastic covered, here is never grate to find.

The variable friction clutches may allow to move the mount by hand. In coherency with optional Encoders you can move the mount or fix the objects by hand. The automatical GOTO drive can be done by optionally FS2 drive, or a Little Foot PE drive. We have tested the mount with both motor drives, so here you can choose your favorite motor drive. We are shure, also the British AWR motor drive can be fitted. Also the Boxdörfer drives or the LF Power drives can be used.

Material we worked for both axis is a 50mm Stainless Steel bar, even the counter weight bar with its diameter of 30mm. Both axis are conduced over 2x 80mm taper roller bearings. The massive construction derivative guaranteed any vibrations, all elements such as worm and gear can be independent fixed and aligned. The motor array never allow to clash the motors. All electrical cables are in this case conducted, they never disturb a 360° axial turn.
By modular construction you can easy put on - off the DEC-Axis even in darkness you can change the telescope connector clam. You can choose shapes between 3" (75 mm ), or Vixen/Synta shape. Other shapes or bars can be ordered on special request and order.

Another very important feature is the length-adjustment of the RA-Axis. This feature allow you to set the RA-Axis in a 50 mm longer version for a better managing long shape telescopes in common with a tripod. Each long shape telescope is going danger to contact the tripod legs, because the mount axis are to short. This problem can be compound by set the RA -Axis longer This option is standard in all our mounts.

The build in motors can go for example 300x GOTO in common with a FS2 12V motor drive version. Stronger motors can be offered, please note this and ask for a price by making a order.
The worm and gears are Modul 0,7 and 180 teeth, they guarantee a periodical error of +/- 7 " or better. The periodical error is only important by using the mount for astronomical photography. Shall it show a big ample (f.ex. +/- 30 ") where your Auto guider can not handle this, there might be a problem. For visual using the periodical error is not important. Our PE-Guarantee affirm all Auto guider a photographic sureness, to can realize all your astronomical images.
