Avalon Instruments introduces the M-Zero, an all-new Equatorial-Altazimuth Single-Arm mount
with Fast-Reverse technology and more ...

The new M-Zero single-arm mount by Avalon Instruments has been designed to revolutionize the world of portable astronomy with both the style and function that Avalon Instruments is known for. Made entirely from anodized aluminum with stainless steel hardware, the low weight and high quality of this mount make it the ideal companion for traveling observers and astro-photographers.



The great versatility and compact size combined with Avalon’s unmistakable style, allows M-Zero to get you to a level where competition stops. M-Zero is three mounts in one: standard equatorial but with no meridian flip, Altazimuth for astronomical use & a time-lapse platform for panoramic pictures, all with only 22 pounds (10 kg) of total weight (including the brand new T-Pod 90) and 17.6 pound (8 kg) loading capacity (sufficient for a 8" SCT or 8" RC).  The mount and tripod come in padded cases that are small enough to fit together in a suitcase for traveling. 

The combination of the brand new StarGo GoTo-System with several esclusive functions, the innovative Fast-Reverse technology (belt drive system) and the top-quality construction allows for high level performance and long-exposure auto-guided astrophotography – even with telescopes with focal lengths up to 2 meters (e.g., 8" SCT & 8" RC).

The Avalon StarGo GoTo-System has been designed and manufactured by Avalon to meet all needs, from the beginner to the professional photographer. In Equatorial mode the M-Zero does not require a meridian flip and relatively long tubes can be used.  It can also be set in Altazimuth mode for observation with large telescopes and binoculars or to acquire automatic time-lapse sequences. In addition, more exclusive functions will be available with StarGo frmware updates, that can be easily updated by PC.
