About the L-Series from PlaneWave Instruments

By integrating all the technologies of PlaneWave Instrument's observatory telescopes into a lightweight stand-alone mount, it incorporates flexibility, simplicity and affordability. It is considerably more compact in its Alt/Az configuration than its equatorial equivalent, allowing a bigger telescope to fit in a smaller enclosure. There are no meridian flips to contend with, unlike conventional German Equatorial mounts, and no large protruding counterweights to create a dangerous hazard in a public observatory.

The use of Alt/Az is more convenient and no polar alignment is required. Besides, it is the way it is accomplished by the experts! The L-Series mounts can be mounted in either Alt/Az or equatorial mode with the optional wedge adapter for additional versatility.

L-350 Mount Features:

  • Load capacity of 100 lbs (45 kg)
  • Direct-drive motors on each axis for smooth, fast, and virtually silent movement of the telescope
  • Slew speeds up to 50 degrees per second
  • High resolution encoders on each axis for precise positioning
  • Zero backlash
  • Zero periodic error
  • PointXP mount modeling software
  • Enclosed electronics
  • Through the mount cabling
