QUANTITY

PlaneWave Ascension 200 Mount is an excellent mount for both permanent observatories and portable applications. Modularity makes the mount easily transportable for field work, breaking down into three components. The heaviest component is 96 pounds.

The PlaneWave Instruments Ascension 200HR mount is beautifully machined and finished, featuring anodized aluminium with touches of powder-coated aluminium and stainless steel complements.

High Resolution Axes Encoders

PlaneWave’s Ascension 200 German Equatorial Mount comes standard with high-resolution Axis Encoders on both Right Ascension and Declination axes.

The A200 encoder technology is a breakthrough in value for a telescope mount using quality components usually founds in professional equipment costing thousands more.

The A200 uses a non-contact encoder design that offers high speed, reliable operation with zero friction and zero wear.

The encoders sits above a 20 µm thin flexible steel strip, which is gold plated to give high reflectivity and corrosion resistance.  This ensured repeatable, precise results for the  life of your mount.
