Losmandy G11GT-LT overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for long-exposure astrophotography and imaging, Losmandy's G11GT-LT Equatorial GoTo Mount provides users with a powerful platform built to support and move larger optical tube assemblies (OTAs) and gear with precision. With a total payload capacity of 75 pounds, excluding counterweights, and a unique 360° rotating declination axis, the G11GT can precisely track the more than 40,000 objects in its database for extended periods of time without vibration and the need for the time-consuming "meridian flip" that is common with many equatorial mounts.

All hardware is made of stainless steel to handle the weight as well as resist wear over years of use, while a dual dovetail saddle will accept the common Vixen-style plates and the larger Losmandy D-style plates. Its dual axis DC servo motors are smoother and more precise than the more common stepper-type motors and are reversible for use in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Losmandy is offering this version of the G11GT without a tripod for those users who already have a reliable support system such as a heavy-duty tripod or pier.

The brain of the G11GT system is Losmandy's Gemini 2 computer hand controller. Equipped with a 40,000+ object database and updatable via the Internet, it sports a full-color display, an intuitive user interface, and an Ethernet 10/100 port for remote PC control. It features Periodic Error Correction (PEC) and declination-axis backlash correction to improve tracking accuracy and precision, with smooth tracking over long periods of time. Alignment assistance is available by selecting at least two bright stars, with the option of aligning to more stars for improved GoTo and tracking accuracy as desired. Multiple guide, slew, and tracking rates allow it to be easily aligned and manually controlled, and to accurately track near- and deep-sky objects. A non-volatile memory and real-time clock preserve settings, including the backlash correction and PEC, when the system is turned off and power disconnected.
