About this product

Model:  rowan_az100
Part Number:  20031200a

This is the mount other Alt-Az mounts want to be when they grow up smiley

Designed and manufactured in the UK by Rowan Astronomy. 

Machined to a very high standard from black anodised aluminium with stainless steel hardware. Specifications includes an 80.0 mm diameter 7075 aluminium wheel gear, a brass worm gear in adjustable worm block and high quality ball bearings used throughout. Load capacity is an impressive 15-20 kg each side. 

Features included adjustable friction clutches on both axis and 360 degree slow-motion controls.  Both slow motion controls remain in alignment with the observer at all times. 

Can be fitted to any tripod designed for a Sky-Watcher NEQ6 mount, so long as you can remove the tripod's AZ pin. 

You can purchase an AZ100 mount as:

  1. Mount only (without encoders). 
  2. Mount with pre-fitted high resolution encoders (152,000 counts / rev) to interface with DSC's (encoder leads remain in alignment and do not wrap around the azimuth axis). 
  3. Mount with pre-fitted high resolution encoders and a Nexus DSC controller. 

Note: The above options exclude saddles, counterweight shaft & counterweight.

A 25mm diameter stainless steel counter weight shaft with mounting flange and a stainless steel 4 kg counterweight (125mm diameter) are available separately. 

Total weight of mount with saddles: 9Kg
