Equatorial Telescopes and Mounts
The NTM-500 mount and its brandnew successor NTM-600 is still the "working horse" for many smaller projects and telescope sizes ranging from 0.3m to 0.6m. High precision open loop pointing and tracking capabilty, real time Linux software remote/robotic control unit and the load capacity of ~100kg on one side lead to a versatile and unique mount for many astronomical, satellite and laser applications.
The NTM-1000 mount is the "big brother" of the NTM-500/600 series with an even more precise pointing and tracking performance and a load capacity of ~800kg on one side. The NTM-1000 can carry optical tubes with apertures of up to ~1m, as well as wide-field OTA arrays. Night-long tracking of targets without meridian-flip, or satellite tracking over the zenith are possible with this mount. Various configurations and pier solutions are available.
