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 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). 

 

Mount Body

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.

 

Equatorial/Altazimuth Mount

The AM5 Mount can be used in both Equatorial and Altazimuth Mode.

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.
