Built for use by beginners or experienced amateurs, Bresser's Exos-2GT Computerized German Equatorial Mount with Tripod helps take the guess-work out of astronomy and gets you observing faster by combining an EQ mount and stainless steel tripod with a 100,000+ database computer guidance system and dual-axis motors. The mount is designed for refractors up to 152mm aperture and reflectors of up to 203mm, with a maximum payload capacity of 29 pounds. To make set-up and alignment faster and easier, Bresser includes an illuminated polar finder scope for use in the Northern Hemisphere. It features a GP-level dovetail saddle for compatible OTAs and an integrated bubble level to assist in set-up.
The SkyTracker kit includes the hand controller unit, and right ascension and declination motors. Its hand controller has more than 100,000 objects with the ability for users to input custom coordinates and favorites. With a slew speed of 2°/second and nine tracking speeds the SkyTracker can accurately keep near and deep sky objects such as the Moon, planets, galaxies and nebulae centered in your eyepiece for long exposure imaging and astrophotography or prolonged observation sessions.
The tripod is built with large 2" diameter stainless steel legs and tight tolerances to reduce vibration for clearer viewing. A center stabilizer bar pulls the accessory tray up to lock the legs in place adding further rigidity and vibration reduction. It is adjustable from 29 to 49" to accommodate a wide range of users and features large thumbscrews for tool-free adjustment in the field. An adjustable plastic tray is also included with the tripod to keep eyepieces, flashlights, and other accessories safe and at the ready.
