ASA Direct Drive Mount DDM160 Carrying Capacity 660 lb
Aside from its impressively sized axles, our top model is also equipped with very accurate encoders. Not only that: Its outer shell is manufactured with highly graded carbon fibre, making its optical appearance stand out among its class.
The DDM160 was designed as an equatorial pier mount: since measurements are client specific, the equatorial pier (optional) can be aligned exactly according to its installation site.
Aside its impressive loading capacity (instrument weight) of up to 660 lb, its guiding accuracy is second to none and can easily be compared to large, meter class modern telescope systems.
Especially helpful in this regard was the expertise of Dipl. Phys. Phillip Keller, whose years of experience in the area of large telescope systems has helped innovate our products from the start!
