Planewave L-350 Direct Drive Mount

The Planewave L-350 Direct Drive Mount is a single fork arm mount ideal for using Planewaves telescopes. The L-350 is a great option for any astronomer looking to get the absolute most out of a 14-inch aperture or smaller telescope. This mount can track in Alt-Az and Equatorial modes.

Direct Drive System

The L-350 Direct Drive mount is constructed from high-quality stainless steel. The dual-axis motors used in this direct drive mount have been designed and manufactured entirely in the United States ensuring the best quality control and precision manufacturing. The On-Axis encoders that are used for this mount are capable of 18 million counts at .072 arc seconds per tick. This mount is quiet, free of backlash, and free of periodic error and pretty much gives you perfect tracking.

The required power to operate the L-350 direct drive mount is 120 VAC at 15 AMPS. Cable management is very easy since all power cabling is internal and you can run all accessory cables through the mount.

L-Series Mounts Features:

  • Direct-drive motors on each axis for smooth, fast, and virtually silent movement of the telescope
  • Slew speeds up to 50 degrees per second on both axes
  • High resolution encoders on each axis for precise positioning
