Mount Counterweights

Counterweights are needed to balance the telescope on your mount. Choose the amount according to the Weight of the telescope and all accessories. Type the number of counterweights you need here. If you don’t need a particular weight type 0 for that weight. The M-Uno uses far less counterweights than a traditional German equatorial mount. Please note that if you use a declination extender, you will need counter weights.

Counter Weight shaft and flange

This accessory is needed for installing counterweights on the M-Uno, It comes in two sizes. Choosing the longer size allows you to use the M-Uno with less counterweights.

Dual Scope Adapter

This adapter allows you to mount 2 telescopes simultaneously on the M-Zero mount

Low latitude Adapter

Needed in order to operate the M-Zero mount in lower latitudes.

Avalon Instruments introduces M-zero. The new Equatorial & Alt-Az Single-Arm telescope mount with Fast-Reversetechnology!

Portable Astronomy
The new M-Zero has been designed to revolutionize the world of portable astronomy. The unique and innovative design, the light weight and the small dimensions, the greater versatility and higher quality make it the perfect tool for the traveling astronomy.

Several mounts in one
The M-zero is more then one mounts: a Standard Equatorial when used with longer optics, a Single Arm with the great benefit of non requiring meridian flip using compact optics, an Alt-azimuthal mount for visual astronomy and, finally, anexcellent time-lapse platform for panoramic photography and video shooting.

Thanks to the new Dual-DEC system, it is possible to install a second telescope in the opposite side of the declination axis. Considering this capability it is possible to use a great range of optics starting from a small (4-5 kg/8.8-11 lb) refractor up to a double setup with a total weight of 12-13 kg/26.4-28.6 lb, obtaining performances so good to get it over the need of a bigger mount.

Zero Maintenance
The virtually zero maintenance, the long lasting materials used and the possibility to easily update the StarGO firmware and software allow the M-zero to be always ready to use, up to date, competitive and extremely reliable!

The M-zero can be balanced, in most cases, with less than 1 kg/2.2 lb counterweight due to the possibility of placing the declination arm in different positions relative to the right ascension arm. The M-zero and the T-pod 90, requiring limited room, may be easily arranged inside a medium size carry on case allowing a convenient setup for air traveling astro-amateurs.

Light and Strong
Made entirely from anodized aluminum, worked using 5 axes CNC machines.
The mount
weights only 6 kg/13.2 lb and, combined with the new T-Pod 90 tripod, reaches a total weight of 12 kg/26.4 lb.

Technology and Innovation
The top quality construction level, the innovative Fast-Reverse with zero backlash technology and the new StarGO control system allow the M-zero to get excellent performances in the photographic use, with guided longer time expositions, even using 2 meters focal length telescopes such as 8” SCT and RC.

THE POLAR SCOPE MONT can be performed by using the polar scope mounted on the RA body that can be rotated as shown in the picture aside to the upper position for a comfortable adjustment position.

The standard kit for the polar alignment is provided with the following components:

  1. Polarscope
  2. Support stand provided of scope fixing knobs and dovetail attack with fixing grip knob.
  3. Illuminator cap provided of red LED and connection cable to the StarGO.
  4. Optional kit with diagonal


The kit can be provided with a Losmandy polar scope
In this case the item 1 shall be of the type suitable to the Losmandy scope in which the graduated scale is not provided.Another option that greatly facilitates the polar alignment operations is the special star diagonal.
This optional component allows to perform the observations through the polar scope in a more comfortable position. This option is available for both types of polar scopes.

Optional Losmandy Polarscope kit
Polarscope support included, adapter and Losmandy Polar scope optional

The new kit allows to work till to 15° latitude degrees and it is possible to assemble it in only 5 minutes
