AM5 Mount

Ever dreamed of an equatorial mount that requires no counterweights? ZWO has answered the call! They created an EQ mount that can operate without a counterweight.

Features:

  • Utilizes harmonic drive technology
  • Strong load capacity – Without cw (13 kg), with cw (20kg)
  • Multi-function EQ and Alt-Azimuth Mount
  • Wi-Fi Connection and Live Star Database with Hand Controller and APP for Control
  • Precision control harmonic drive speed reducer with synchronous belt
  • ASCOM and ASIAIR Support
  • NO COUNTERWEIGHT NEEDED!

The traditional equatorial mount requires heavy counterweights for use. It’s normally very difficult to keep balance in RA and DEC directions, also inconvenient for transit and storage, which bring the astronomy amateurs a lot of pain when they are out for imaging.

Some of the harmonic drive mounts are relatively simple in functions, insufficient in load capacity, also not very stable in use.

Mount Body

The internal structure of the body is optimized with the harmonic drive speed reducer and synchronous belt, bringing more accurate control and an amazing reduction ratio of 300:1.

 

 

Astronomy-Dedicated Strain Wave Gear

It comes with very low periodic errors, smooth gearing and high torque. The AM5 is born for astronomy. ZWO measures each mount and equip it with the exclusive PE curve before it leaves our factory. The X-axis represent drive angle. Y-axis represents periodic errors. The periodic error is stably controlled within±20 arc-seconds.

 

 

5kg Mount Weight, Large Load Capacity

While the portability is very important, the stability is also essential in use. We don’t blindly pursue the lightweight of the mount body; we are more so along the lines of stability for entire use.

Load Capacity: 13kg – 20kg

Capacity with the counterweight attached is 13kg, 20kg on the contrary.
