AZ 1000 HPS Mount - Silver

Special version for solar observation

This version of the AZ 1000 mount is intended for solar observers and photographers. The only difference to the "normal" AZ 1000 is the silver anodized finish, which ensures that even after hours of sun observation, you can still touch the mount without any problems, e.g. for dismantling. An AZ mount is generally a good choice for solar photography. A quick 3-star alignment at night is sufficient to set up the mount accurately enough. Thanks to the short exposure times in solar photography, AZ tracking is sufficient for most applications.

The AZ1000 HPS mount is based on the mechanics and electronics of the GM1000 HPS and offers an altazimuthal configuration. The AZ1000 HPS is a very versatile, light and transportable mount designed especially for scientific activities such as satellite tracking, photometric and astrometric measurements, seeing monitoring and so on.

Due to its altazimuthal design, it’s necessary an optional field de-rotator (ASCOM compatible) in order to get long exposures without field rotation.

The mount is supplied with a short counterweight bar; it’s not necessary to exactly counterbalance the weight of the telescope: using counterweights for about 50% of your payload you will get a sufficient stable configuration. Most of the GM1000 HPS accessories are compatible with the new AZ1000 HPS.

AZ Features

The AZ HPS series are very versatile mounts, in altazimuthal configuration, perfect for scientific activities such as LEO satellite tracking, space debris monitoring, laser communication, high resolution spectroscopy, photometric and astrometric measurements.

They are also suitable for didactic applications, popular science or some amateur astronomy activities like planetary imaging or visual observations. The standard version allows to assembly the optics to only a side of the mount and it’s supplied with a counterweight bar. An option is available for a double telescope configuration in order to have two (or multiple) optical systems on the same mount. Using the same HPS technology, these new mounts derive from the GM HPS series, well known and appreciated all around the world by both professionals and amateurs.
