    Hobym Crux Mini Computerized German Equatorial Mount

    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. It offers excellent performance for precise long focal length astrophotography due to its zero-backlash design, which is a major advantage of harmonic drives. Even without PEC, exceptional guided tracking is possible due to the instantaneous response to guide commands. 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 just 5.5 lbs of counterweights, and the whole setup is so small that it can fit into the space normally occupied by a telephoto lens in a camera bag or backpack.


    The CRUX MINI is the ultimate high-capability travel mount, and its outstanding performance, rigidity, and design that can meet the needs of discriminating astroimagers. The harmonic drives have an estimated lifespan that exceeds 100 years with near continuous permanent usage.  No other mount motor design can boast this level of dependability. 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 connection via serial or USB. 


    The Crux MINI uses P-motion Control, one of the core features of the TiTan TCS, to control periodic errors (PE) in an innovative way. As a result, running the in-mount PEC routine while autoguiding will result in a periodic error value below +/- 5 arcseconds.  Autoguiding will further reduce this to a fraction of an arcsecond.
