10 Micron GM2000   oder                      Takahashi EM-400





 Quick Control AC servo brushless new generation motors with F.I.S. (fully integrated servomotors): F.I.S. is an absolute news for total integration of electronics (controls, power management, encoder, communications) in the motor’s body.

Go-to speed:

 Up to 2400× Go-to speed in both axes (standard 1800x).

Pointing precision:

 3’ typical with polar scope setting.; optimizable with software (T point) ecc

Tracking speed:

 stars, sun, moon, (LX 200 extended specifications). Different speeds in 2 axes via software for comet, minor planet and sat tracking. Tracking precision: less then +/- 3 arc. Sec.

Hand PAD:

-hand terminal with objects database and more control menu; for all motions and for activation of three stars reference calibration.
-Ergonomic and professional JOY hand PAD as progressive joystick:
with HALL element , you can move your telescope very sweetly or very fast to the reference object you want (optional).

Serial RS232 connection to PC:

Remote control of the mount from PC with LX200 extended protocol (Meade 16’’gps and Astrophysics) with software “PERSEUS” (in English, included), with” The Sky”, ecc.. or using standard "ASCOM".
You can control the mount completly from a remote place with a host server connected via ethernet or internet, o wireless intranet.

GPS sincronization:

the system automatically set the time T.U. and location with GPS signal (GPS receiver optional)


QCI have encoders inside the motors with a final theoretical resolution of 0.5 arc./sec., encoder give position of the mount in every time, as well after power off of the system (park condition), in fact, in automatic the system backups positions in internal n.v. memory of motors and execute the homing position “soft” at power on in automatic sequence. You can have (optional) an other homing “hard” on case of total loosing of memory or zero point references .


For increase the precision of guiding you can activate P.E.C. function (Periodic Error Correction), this function put in AR motor’s permanent memory all your guiding corrections and, if you want, is available a program on PC for mediate several PEC strings before putting final PEC sequence in motor’s memory (like “pro-track).

Auto-guiding interface:

The system is fitted with a a 6 pin modular connector for Meade Pictor, Starlight cameras and SBIG cameras.
The Meade Pictor, Starlight cameras or ST-XX SBIG may be connected to the 6-pole Western Modular TTL plug.
The QCI does not need any adjustment, the tracker connector is always ready for operation.
If the CCD camera sends a signal to the QCI, it automatically performs the proper corrective movement.
During the correction process Speed Rate is 0.5X (standard setting).

Not winding cables system:

The system know all turns of the axes in automatic or manual mode and do not roll up cables around , unwinding every time you GO-TO an object.

Meridian flip function:

The system in automatic know the right position of pointing for not touch column or tripod , and GO-TO the object max. 10° over the meridian line; you can also go-to an object 5° under the horizon , for to wait the object .The system do not stop the sideral tracking during a photo on meridian flip line up to 20° over , so you can guide and photograph for one hour and 20 minutes.

Computerized remote system QCI with HAND TERMINAL and objects databases for control and automatic GO-TO; ergonomic professional JOY PAD (optional). Connecting to remote via RS232 interface with LX200 extended protocol (Meade 16'' GPS or A.Ph.) ASCOM compatible. Compatible with software "The Sky" and software PERSEUS in english included.

New generation motors with F.I.S. (Fully Integrated Servomotors) system, zero-cogging power grip trasmition belt.

The new EM-400 mount has been developed to fill in the gap between the NJP and larger EM-500 mount. This new mount has been designed to carry an 85 lb load. It disassembles into 3 sections, the R.A. Dec assembly, the base assembly and the counterweight shaft. This reduces the heaviest part to 49 lbs. lighter than the NJP equatorial head and makes transportation to remote sites easier.

The entire mount rotates 360° on its base for easier set up. This allows the tripod to be set in the most secure position.

All of the cables attach to the underside of the Dec. housing and the use of internal encoders allows the mount to be used without having the cable wrap around in inconvenient positions.

The 8 kg. counter weights use two lock screws for more secure attachment to the counter weight shaft.

The EM-400 uses the highly accurate EM-200 computing reticle with an 11x eyepiece to allow 3 arc minute polar alignment to the celestial pole. This reticle is usable until the year 2040.

The EM-400 is a dual voltage mount that will operate on 12 volts [250x sidereal] or 24 volts [500x sidereal].

The Temma-2 system is compatible with the Sky and other popular software using the free ASCOM and Linux drivers.

The EM-400 can be used anywhere in the world with a latitude adjustment from 0ƒAto 50ƒA in either hemisphere.
