Small Overall Dimensions
With the same M-zero standard version smart and compact design, the M-zero obs comes with very small overall dimensions (72 x 64 x 60 cm), in this way it is possible to place the full equipment in a very small observatory. The M-zero obs comes already provided with the HQ stepper motors, as well as the M-zero HQ, to achieve the best performance possible in tracking. The well-known M-zero reliability and versatility allow to equip on the mount many different setups, double telescope setup included.
No Meridian Flip
The M-zero obs, as well as the M-zero standard version and the M-uno, allow the very helpful No Meridian flip feature. Two main configurations: one telescope setup, double telescope setup Among the many setups possible with the M-zero obs, there are two main configurations: the one telescope setup and the double telescope setup. The first one is more suggested for those who wish to use the mount inside an observatory, the second is suggested as a portable setup.
One Telescope Setup (better for small observatory)
This configuration is suitable for a small customized observatory, the StarGo board can be assembled on the bottom side of the DEC arm, in this way it can be also considered as an "extra counterweight". In this way, with a small refractor, the mount can be also balanced without any counterweight. The telescope can track all night long, without the need of the Meridian Flip, without any collision risk.
Double Telescope Setup (optimized for portable/stable backyard configuration)
The double telescope configuration has been optimized for the portable setup or a stable backyard configuration In this way, it will be possible to fully use the second telescope. Thanks to the high-quality materials (anodized aluminum and stainless steel), the mount can be left outside for a long time, by using a simple cover, to prevent rain/humidity/weather damage. In this way, it will be possible to have several sessions and, thanks to the PARK/UNPARK StarGo GoTo System feature. With this configuration, the StarGo board can be assembled directly on the pier, in this way any second telescope collision risk will be prevented.
Optional Motorized Polar Alignment
The optional Motorized Polar Alignment allows full remote control, in this way, once the setup has been done, it will be possible to perform an accurate remote Polar Alignment. NOTE: Motorized Polar alignments are optional and must be purchased separately.
