About this product

Model:  zwo_am5
Part Number:  ZWO-AM5

NEW ZWO AM5 Harmonic Drive Equatorial Mount. 

Harmonic Drive mounts offer several advantages over conventional German Equatorial Mounts. 

Traditional Equatorial mounts require counterweighting. The AM5 can work at loads up to 13kg without counterweights, making it a much lighter and more portable option. 

NOTE: Tripod shown is not included but is available separately. Please see our ZWO AM5 bundle if you wish to buy an AM5 with a tripod. 


*Note: The recommended operating voltage for the ZWO Harmonic Equatorial Mount is 12V.

When the actual input voltage is below 10.8V, the mount will emit a beeping alarm to indicate an under-voltage condition.

Extremely well engineered.

I received my mount and the PE200 extension within 2 days, the usual excellent service from FLO.
Due to Illness I didnít take it out of the box for a few days, but when I finally unpacked it I was absolutely thrilled at the quality of the engineering, and the beautiful anodised finish.
Although the customary clouds which always seem to arrive as soon as you buy any new gear arrived bang on cue, I did connect the handset and power up the mount, which is so smooth in operation you can hardly hear it.
I did a firmware update, which requires the handset to be connected, but the mount will be controlled by the ASIair once I set it up and start imaging.
So, just waiting for a bit of decent weather to set up and put the mount through itís paces - I am using my HEQ5 tripod, and the PE200 fits it perfectly, as a Puck is supplied to enable it to locate on the tripod - Iíve seen some reports that the puck is a little oversized, however mine fitted perfectly.
So, I will update my review in due course once I get chance to actually set the mount up and use it ďunder the starsĒ

Just received my AM5 and tripod and they are amazing what a bit of engineering so light . A lot lighter than my heq5 to say it's ex display there's not a mark on it thank you flo. By the way my GT 81 looks very nice sat on it just need clear skies and a little bit darker but that doesn't stop having a play!!! Once again thank you flo

I was looking for a new mount for the rasa 8 after a few emails with Chris at FLO decided on the am5, a great mount build quality is excellent, much lighter than my heq5, the mount is rock solid no movement whatsoever in dec and ra, being slightly over the 13kg weight limit I also purchased the counter weight and bar, also wanted a more sturdy tripod so I also purchased the skywatcher tripod with the 3/8 thread the am5 sits perfectly on this tripod, to say Iím very happy with this mount would be an understatement, thanks to FLO great service again, a big shout out to Chris for the help and advice.
