EM-200 German Equatorial Mount

The EM-200 is a German equatorial mounting providing a stable support for any telescope up to 15 kg without the accessories (load limits 18kg, except counterweight). For example, Mewlon-210, CN-212 or TOA-130 OTAs will be comfortably exploitable with their equipment for astrophotography or CCD imaging. The couple of the motorization, more powerful than the old version, supports the use of the strong loads cantilever.

The EM-200, with an ergonomic design and particularly adapted to the hard night conditions, was designed to face the most extreme visual and photographic challenges. RA/DEC motors are totally integrated inside the mount not laying outside any components that are easily lost during night observation. Strict assembly and use of high performance mechanical pieces features Takahashi mounts with a periodic error of ± 5 arcsecond by turn, while competitors just do not provide such specification.
