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 AZ4000HPS was the second Alt/Az mount developed by 10Micron after the original AZ2000 which was a custom made mount for a specific client.  It is an altazimuth mount based on the mechanics of the GM4000HPS equitorial mount.  While not suitable for long-exposure imaging, these mounts are well suited to visual astronomy, planetary and short-exposure astrophotography, supernova surveys, video astronomy, satellite tracking, photometric and astrometric measurements, and other scientific uses.  Their extremely precise targeting and tracking (even in an alt/az configuration) are perfect for survey work.

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.
