The Virtuoso Computerized Multi-Purpose Mount Kit from Sky-Watcher includes a motorized pan-tilt mount useful for imaging and observation, as well as a 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain optical tube and a complement of accessories. Sky-Watcher designed the Virtuoso mount for panorama and time lapse imaging using a DSLR, point-and-shoot camera, or even a smartphone. The adjustable tracking speeds, definable GoTo positions, and input ports make the image capture functions user-friendly yet feature rich enough to perform a range tasks. A 2.5mm shutter release input and provided shutter cable for Canon EOS cameras enable automatic triggering by the Virtuoso. The 6-pin communication port can further broaden the functionality of the Virtuoso mount by integrating a GoTo hand controller that has a pre-loaded object database.

Dual-axis motor encoders equip the Virtuoso mount's DC servos for computerized altitude and azimuth control as well as manual adjustment while maintaining latitude alignment. A built-in latitude scale allows the operator to align the mount based on their position in either hemisphere and store their latitude position using the mount's internal memory. The included Maksutov-Cassegrain optical tube features a 1250mm f/13.9 lens system and a full complement of accessories; including a 1.25" star diagonal, 5x24 finderscope, two eyepieces, and a full-aperture solar filter. This optical tube and accessory kit supplement the Virtuoso's digital imaging features, making this multi-purpose mount ready for both astronomical observation and motion controlled image capture.
