Experience innovation with the HOBYM CRUX 140 Traveler.
Weighing in at less than 7 pounds (3 kg), the CRUX 140 Traveler is capable of holding up to 28 pounds (13 kg) with an attached 4-pound (1.7 kg) counterweight. This is enough payload capacity to hold even the most revered astroimaging telescopes with ease, like the Celestron RASA 8 or Takahashi FSQ106. As long as you're using the Traveler, you can be sure that this mount will impress you every single time. HOBYM Observatory designs products to outdo themselves every time and to foster the best possible experience for astrophotographers, and the CRUX 140 is no different.
Adaptable, Intuitive Design
The CRUX 140 Traveler comes equipped with the TiTan TCS (Telescope Control System) handle any operation even the most serious astrophotographers ask of their equipment. The advanced stepped control motor system and strain wave gears allow for one of the smoothest moving systems even under maximum capacity. This goes for each of the 4 modes built into the Traveler, which are equatorial mode, alt-az mode, time-lapse mode, and terrain observe mode. The Traveler is literally designed to travel anywhere with you, adapting to any situation.
