This new mount is based on the mechanics and electronics of the GM1000 HPS and offers an alt-azimuth configuration. The AZ1000 HPS is a very versatile, light and transportable mount designed for scientific activities such as visual and video astronomy, satellite tracking, photometric and astrometric measurements. Due to its alt-azimuth design, this special mount isn’t suitable for long-exposure astrophotography.

The mount is supplied with a short counterweight bar; it’s not necessary to exactly counterbalance the weight of the telescope: using counterweights for about 50% of your payload you will provide a sufficiently stable configuration.

Most of the GM1000HPS accessories are compatible with the new AZ1000 HPS.

The 10 Micron AZ1000HPS basic package includes:
  • AZ1000HPS mount head with absolute encoders on both axes
  • Control box and stand alone hand pad
  • QCI 2.8 software
  • Counterweight shaft
  • 3" Losmandy-style dovetail clamp
  • AC/DC power supply
  • Mount cables
  • Integrated WiFi
The complete package for the AZ1000HPS adds:
  • One 13.2 lbs. (6 kg) counterweight
  • One 6.6 lbs. (3 kg) counterweight
  • 10Micron Aries or Geoptik Hercules tripod and soft case
  • DC/DC Power supply
