AzMaxLoad Mount single arm Version with encoder
Tele Optik discontinued years ago the super strong made Giro XXL azimuth mount but too many customers asked us for such XXL mount, we decided to design a new one. Technical datas:Mount:
bottom diameter 180 mm = 7.1 inch
horizontal axis: diameter 50 mm, made from Stainless Steel V2A as friction axis in central part and at both ends with 50 mm = 2 inch axial-needel-bearing
vertical axis: 180 mm = 7.1 inch gliding on teflon. Bottom and top part is pre-loadet with a 45 mm = 1.772 inch axial-needel-bearing
telescope attachment arm: diameter 60 mm = 2.362 inch, made from Alu AlMgSi1
distance from center of mount to end of arm = 200 mm = 7.874 inch
total height of mount from bottom side to top of central locking screw is 160 mm = 6.3 inch
total length of mount from side of shaft attachment to end of telescope arm = 305 mm = 12 inch
side telescope arm has 2 threads Metric M6 with center to center spacing of 35 mm like Tele Optik GR2 DX and GR3 DX , so same quick release holder can be used.
weight: 8.15 kg = 17.93 lbs
- with encoder
- made from Stainless Steel V2A
diameter 30 mm
length 277 mm
weight 1600 grams = 3.52 lbs
very difficult to say weights, we all know it depends on the tripod and lenght and size of scopes. From my experience, if the mount is sitting on a real strong tripod, like our Tele Optik , this mount will hold very solid a Celestron C14, a APM Apo 7", a APM Achromat 8", on a strong pier, 50 kg, 120 lbs or more shall be really no problem. The one picture show a 18 inch cassegrain with 50 kg tube weight, which the owner manual tracked up to 900 powerDelivery contains
- Mount with counterweight shaft
- with encoder
Note: A mounting connection can be made individually.
