Juha Posted May 15, 2017 Share Posted May 15, 2017 Finally, the new mount came home from Italy, after a long wait ..... The requirements were, mount should have a loading capacity for larger scopes, equipped with encoders, etc. The final options were Fornax 52, Mesu-Mount 200 and Gemini G53F, which was chosen. For some reason I did not get any contact/offer from Mesu ? The price range all of them were of the same + - 6.5 K €. Gemini promised a load capacity of 43kg and the workmanship is surely good , so the promises are not just empty words. ("Periodic error guaranteed to be 4 arc seconds or less, Peak-to-Peak.") The tripod is a friction drive model, so there are no worm gears at all. The price for the package was € 6300 (Tripod / Losmandy rail, Pulsar2 / Hand controller, counterbalance rod, counterweights, QHY polemaster/adapter and all cables). I did not know mount will be delivered with QHY polemaster! maybe it was a giveaway?......
