Astronomy mounts are not all equal

Astronomy Products – Using a sturdy mount to keep your time-machine-to-the-stars stationary is the difference between spectacular moments during your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”, and less than fabulous views due to poor performance on the part of your telescope. One of the top heavy-duty mounts for your time-machine-to-the-stars is the Celestron’s CGE Pro German computerized equatorial mount. Light enough at 154 lbs to be transported to the perfect dark sky viewing spot, the Celestron CGE Pro German computerized equatorial mount can hold up to 90 pounds of telescope firmly in place, for timeless and unforgettable moments on your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”. Just plug the Celestron CGE Pro into a 12-volt power source and the onboard polar alignment routine quickly and reliably helps you align the mount, even if the celestial pole is hidden from view. Making locating and following the celestial object of your choice across the night sky as easy as initializing the Celestron CGE Pro’s systems and blasting off into the night sky where no man has been before.

Track stars and other celestial objects easily

Astronomy Products – Tracking celestial objects as they travel across the night sky using guided wide-field astrophotography usually requires you set up a heavy telescope mount, even if you just need to support a lightweight camera and lens. The 2.2-pound (1 kg) AstroTrac TT320X-AG is small enough at just 17x3x1.5 inches to be easily folded and tucked into a camera bag. This mount unfolds quickly and reliably, and can be mounted on a camera tripod, and then aligned with the celestial pole using the optional polar scope, to track celestial objects across the night sky precisely. The AstroTrac TT320X-AG is compatible with both the AstroTrac Polar Scope, Pier, Wedge, and Head products and allows you to take longer exposures at extended focal lengths, for bright images with less noise. AstroTrac indicates that the TT320X-AG only has a tracking error of about 5 arcseconds, peak-to-peak, over a period of 5 minutes, perfect for wide-field views.

The TT320X-AG looks great and works like a charm

Astronomers need a good star tracking guide

The AstroTrac TT320X-AG uses 8 AA batteries to provide power for its systems, which provides about 10 hours of use, and AA batteries are pretty easy to pick up, so power usage shouldn’t be a problem. The AstroTrac TT320X-AG also has a right ascension auto guiding feature that’s compatible with popular brands of auto guides, like SBIG SG-4, Orion Starshoot, LVI SmartGuider, and auto guiding software like Maxim DL and Ph.D., but you’ll need to order an additional cable required separately, to use this feature.

The auto guiding port is ready to start your “Journey to the Beginning of Space and Time”
