Takahashi EM-400 equatorial mount

With a loading capacity of 35 kg, the EM-400 equatorial mount is placed between the JP-Z and the EM-500 but with the ergonomics of the EM-200. Composed of 3 dismountable parts, it is easier to transport and more rapid to implement that the JP-Z. Moreover, integration of the electronic parts inside keeps safely all the fragile elements. It is ideal for the itinerant observers wishing to take advantage of their optical tubes under the best night skies, like for instance TOA-150 refractor or Mewlon-250 reflector.

The EM-400 is equipped with the Temma-2 automatic pointing system, controllable by computer. It is compatible with the majority of the software used by the astronomers amateurs (via the ASCOM interface, for example), whether it is Windows, MacOSX or Linux operating systems.

Whatever your optical tube, your assembly or your astronomical field of predilection are, the Takahashi EM-400 EQ mount will answer your waiting.
