Mounts for observatories
.
For our high-quality telescopes, we can also offer you the matching mounts. With the models GM3000HPS and GM4000HPS 10Micron has created two precise and robust GoTo mounts ideal with our telescopes. 
The GM HPS mounts have absolute encoders on both axes. The mounts never lose their orientation even if the axes are adjusted manually.

DRIVE MECHANICS
• Self-locking, high-precision worm-wheel-drives with classic friction clutches
• Internal wiring – no external mount cables
• High torque Servo DC motors eliminate imbalance motor stall
• Proprietary motor-electronics for easy servicing

DRIVE ELECTRONICS
• Absolute on-axis encoders in RA & Dec, featuring more than 10 million increments (interpolated), fully encapsulated and calibrated
• Up to 0.5“ RMS tracking accuracy - for long duration unguided imaging
• Closed loop (encoder controlled) satellite tracking
• speed - up to 20°/s
• Extremely low power consumption and miniature format (20 x 15 x 8cm) electronics
• After an observing session, the entire electronics box (motor electronics with Linux computer) and HC can be easily detached and protected from premature aging and moisture damage
• Service friendly design - electronics box and HC can be easily exchanged for service, without returning the precisely adjusted HPS mount

FIRMWARE
• Automatic refraction and flexure correction functions implemented – the only way for perfect unguided tracking during long exposures
• Intuitively operated V2 software and QCI motor control system, integrated into an onboard Linux computer – intelligence built-in
• No external PC or laptop mandatory in the field – all functions in the onboard computer can be accessed via stand-alone hand control unit (HC)
• Precise multistar pointing models, entering satellite and comet trajectories, programming individual observing
sessions and much more
• Well documented firmware and drivers, working autonomously w/o additional planetarium software, without
need for external RS-232 converters / USB ports
• Excellent documentation in English and German
• Electronic balance - requiring one time balancing only
• Ultra stable pointing models for safe East/West load reversal – no change of pointing model necessary when changing accessories
• Precise polar alignment – software aided and accomplished within minutes
• Fully remote controlled via your observatory PC with 10/100 LAN included, perfectly prepared for your future Internet observatory
• Remote diagnostics assist option via Internet
 


 
GM3000HPS observatory mount

telescope Mount GM3000The equatorial mount GM 3000 HPS is the ideal mount for our 16 and 18 inch RC telescopes and astrographs.

The mount reaches a satellite tracking and positioning speed of 12 deg/sec. with an average positioning accuracy <20 "and a tracking accuracy of about 1"/15 min (peak to peak). The mount is also equipped with high-precision absolute encoders on both axes, which opens up completely new possibilities. It never loses orientation, even if you adjust the axes manually. Maximum load: 100 kg (220 lbs) pure instrument weight, optimum load capacity 80 kg instrument weight.

GM4000HPS observatory mount

Mount observatories GM4000 HPSThe equatorial mount GM 4000 HPS is the ideal mount for our 18 inch to 24 inch RC telescopes and Newton astrographs.

The GM 4000 HPS is one of the most viable mounts produced in series. 
The mount reaches a satellite tracking and positioning speed of 10 deg/sec. with an average positioning accuracy <20 "and a tracking accuracy of about 1"/15 min (peak to peak). The mount also has highly accurate absolute encoders on both axes, which opens up completely new possibilities. It never loses orientation, even if you adjust the axes manually. Maximum load: 150 kg (330 lbs) pure instrument weight, the optimum load is 130 kg.
