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.

The AZ2000HPS is the latest version of the AZ2000 which was a special made for a specific client.  It is an altazimuth mount based on the mechanics of the GM2000HPS equitorial mount.  The mount is a very versatile research mount perfect of scientific activities  such as satellite tracking, photometric and astrometric measurements, LiDAR laster applications, etc.  Due its altazimuth design, the AZ2000HPS is not suitable for most amateur astrophotography.

The original AZ2000 mount was produced in a special Antarctica version that was able to work at extremely low temperatures on the order of -119F (-84C).  Special mechanical and electronic features were necessary in order to produce the unique design including the use of special lubricants, wiring and connectors.  A special housing was also designed to protect the mount against temperature and the formation of ice crystals which required different levels of seals depending on the effective operational temperature.
