About this product
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 1: Tripod shown is not included but is available separately. Please see our ZWO AM5 bundle if you wish to buy with tripod.
NOTE 2: The laser shown below is not included in AM5 mounts sold in the UK (local laws regarding lasers restrict their use).
The internal structure of the body is optimised with the Harmonic Drive Speed Reducer and Synchronous Belt, bringing more control and an amazing reduction Ratio of 300:1
Weight and Load Capacity
The mount head weighs only 5kg but has an outstanding load capacity of 13kg without counterweights and 20kg with counterweighting.
The AM5 Mount can be used in both Equatorial and Altazimuth Mode.
