About this product

Model:  paramount_mx
Part Number:  mx

The Paramount MX+ is a large mount that is well suited to both portable and permanent setups. 

With an instrument capacity of 45kg and a head weight of 23kg the MX+ is ideal as a mount for both portability and permanent installations. 

The mount itself is a unibody construction made to a very high standard from high-grade aluminium. 

Features include belt-driven aluminium gears with spring-loaded brass worms to eliminate backlash. This enables the mount to achieve less than 7 arc second peak-to-peak periodic error. 

When coupled with Software Bisque's professional-level software suite, the Paramount MX+ can be PEC corrected to deliver amazingly low levels of periodic error.

The Paramount MX+ overcomes many of the problems experienced other astrophotography setups. It is capable of tracking two hours past the meridian, potentially eliminating the need to do a meridian flip during an imaging session. It also features an integral 2 port USB2.0 hub near the camera end of the mount. This reduces the number of wires strung between the mount and a computer.

The mount also features Software Bisque's Versa-Plate which has been engineered to accept almost any mounting system. Coupled with the mount's heavy-duty capacity, the Paramount MX+ is capable of precise operation with a 14-inch telescope fitted with a full set of astrophotography accessories.

With Paramount's high-end telescope control hardware, the MX+ is able to track and slew with an extremely high degree of accuracy. Precious imaging time will not be wasted trying to centre poorly slewed targets.

Together with the included T point and Camera Control add-on's  the MX+ achieves superb pointing accuracy and full control over your astro imaging.
