Freedom Find™ - tracking made easy!

With the patented Freedom Find (dual-encoder) technology which allows the telescope to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session.


New Features:

♦ German Equatorial / Alt-Az dual mode
♦ Permanent periodic error correction(PPEC). PPEC can be trained with Autoguider or PC.
♦ Belt drive - Super smooth PE curve. Low backlash, silent slewing.
♦ Shutter release control for batch exposures of astrophotography.
♦ Motor controller with high torque and accuracy.
♦ Include two dual-fit (45mm/75mm) saddle for mounting two telescopes.
♦ Improved reliable power supply outlet.
♦ New motor controller with higher torque and accuracy.
♦ Polar-alignment with polar-scope.
♦Primary axis encoder tracks the mount's position. Users can push the mount at any time without worrying about losing the mount's alignment.
