The availability on the market of more and more advanced and flexible astronomical imaging systems has opened new windows to the sky. Today, ultra-high definition and ultra-high speed imaging is within the amateur's reach far more that what was predictable ten years ago. 10 Micron's products evolved at the same pace over the last 10 years in terms of tracking and pointing accuracy and speed. The HPS series mounts are now at the peak of this process.
Every observer knows that when you are under the sky you have little time and each set up operation comes with the risk of compromising the night. Having excellent performance on paper means nothing if many complex set up operations are required before reaching that performance. This is the reason 10 Micron mounts are designed around the user's needs, and not to enforce the mount's way of operation on the user.
10 Micron mounts are now used in the field as well as in remote observatory sites, in educational observatories as well as in the extreme climates of northern Canada and the Atacama Desert.
