Takahashi EM-200 T-2M Modified Equatorial Mount - Long Counterweight Shaft

Takahashi EM-200 T-2M Modified Equatorial Mount with Extra Long Counterweight Shaft

This EM-200 T-2M uses a counterweight shaft that allows the use of extra counter weights for heavy loads. When compared to the standard mount, which uses a shorter counter weight shaft which retracts into the Dec. housing - this mount does not. The modified design mount uses a longer, heavier, detachable counter weight shaft adding an additional 5kg of weight and more room to use more counter weights.

The Takahashi EM-200 T-2M Equatorial Mount is an accurate, precision-built GoTo German equatorial mount that provides a stable platform for payloads of up to 40 pounds. The modern aesthetic design of the EM-200 is highly attractive as well as beautifully functional. The RA and DEC stepper motors are fully integrated into the mounting,and the high precision design and construction provides cyclic errors lower than +/- 5 arc seconds.

The integrated polar alignment telescope has an illuminated reticule which can be dimmed to suit the user or observing conditions. In conjunction with the precision altitude and azimuth adjusters, this will typically give polar alignment accuracy within 2 minutes of arc of the celestial pole. Included in this package are an RS232C cable, ST-4 or ST-7 cable, shaft encoders, hand controller and power cord for 12V.

The new style EM-200 mounts include the ability for operation on 12v and feature high speed slewing at 700x [sidereal rate]. 12V will give you a slewing speed of up to 700X sidereal. Your PC is required to actuate the GoTo functions on this mount. A dual-axis hand controller and power cable for 12V/220V battery connection is included.
