Model: paramount_mytPart Number: SB10281
A highly portable mount that can be supplied on two different tripods.
1) The Paramount MyT Tripod
2) Berlebach Planet Tripod
Though weighing a modest 34 lbs, the MyT can easily carry 50 lbs in equipment, while maintaining the accuracy and tracking precision to be expected from a Software Bisque mount.
**Our current stock of MyT mounts are priced at the Pre Bisque Price Increase. Once sold the retail price will increase to £7300**
Refined engineering and years of mount development have led to several additional mount features for the Paramount MyT EQ. Through the mount cable management helps keep your set up organized and tangle free. A rotating mount base allows for AZ adjustments to be made without affecting the mount's altitude. Red lights provide a soft glow under the mount to allow for ease of adjustment at any moment. This light can be turned off as well as your viewing or imaging session gets underway. Clutch-free worm block design maintains the mount's physical orientation to increase mount pointing and tracking accuracy while a mechanical switch on each axis will disengage the worm from the the gear while still balancing the payload.
Software plays a major roll in the funcationality of your mount set up and Software Bisque has you covered with a full suite of mount and camera control software. Included with your MyT mount are the TheSkyX Professional Edition; a full featured planetarium style software that offers a beautiful interface for mount control. Camera Add On software allows for camera, focuser, filter wheel and SBIG adaptive optics control. TPoint software with SuperModel and ProTrack provides professional level telescope pointing correction. All softwares included are multi-licence allowing for installation on up to 6 machines, and can be installed on either Mac or Windows operating systems.
Back in the wild old days I used to play as prop. I am fairly well built. I don't think I'd care to move anything much heavier (I carry an AZEQ6 up and downstairs with no problem) but perhaps I should remove the counterweight.Ian gave some very good advice.The mount itself is lovely. I didn't find the instructions about removing the mount from the box very helpful since they didn't take into account the presence of the plastic bag.Also the red anodising is not in my example consistent. For me it is not important but for some people paying so much style is important.For the money I think including a cable to connect between the mains and the transformer would be nice.It is early days but it seems to be a fine mount.
