Hobym Crux Mini Computerized German Equatorial Mount

Small, Light, Powerful

The CRUX MINI is amazingly efficient, weighing an ultra-light 5.5 lbs and able to carry payloads almost 4 times its weight with optional counterweights. The harmonic drive that moves this mount offers excellent tracking performance due to its zero-backlash design. The CRUX MINI does not require any counterweights for payloads up to 7.5 lbs (3.4 kg). This ensures lower costs and much greater freedom in transporting the mount to remote locations. The mount can carry a full 22 lbs (10kg) with the optional 5.5 lbs counterweight and counterweight shaft. The whole setup is so small that it can fit into space normally occupied by a telephoto lens in a camera bag or backpack.

Accurate Tracking

The Crux Mini utilizes the P-motion Control system to control cycle errors in the gears. This can minimize the tracking error to less than ±3 arcseconds. In other words, you'll likely be able to take a 20-minute exposure using a medium-sized refractor without using a guiding system!

TITAN TCS

This incredible telescope mount is equipped with the most advanced telescope control system, the TiTaN1 TCS, to realize the highest ease of use and control among mobile systems – with or without a computer. The TiTaN TCS controller has high power and the ability to scale and supports advanced wireless environments as well as a connection via serial or USB.
