Astro Physics 1600 GOTO AEL

The best of the best in this serie

The 1600GTO mount has been designed and engineered to accomodate the use of extremely precise Absolute Encoders. Absolute Encoders allow the mount to know its exact location regardless of accidental software errors and will allow it's recovery. This is particularly important in remote setups. Furthermore, they virtually eliminate periodic error, reducing it below 0.2 arcseconds in our tests.

We recommend that that encoders be installed at the time that you purchase your mount, however you can install them yourself later as your needs change. This frees the user from having to make the decision to include the encoders at the time of the mount's purchase

Specification:

ConstructionAll CNC machined aluminum bar stock, stainless steel, brass; stainless steel fasteners
Finishing and AssemblyEvery part is hand-finished and inspected. All assembly is done by hand, by highly skilled mount assembly staff.
Worm wheel - R.A. & Dec.10.3" (262 mm), 225 tooth aluminum
Worm gear - R.A. & Dec. 1.22" (31 mm) diameter special low-wear alloy
Axis shaft - R.A. & Dec. 3.74" (95 mm) diameter
Shaft axis bearings - R.A. & Dec.5.71" (145 mm) diameter
Latitude range 0 to 78 degrees
Azimuth adjustment Approximately 13 degrees (+/- 6.5 degrees from center)
Counterweight shaft 1.875" (47.6 mm) diameter x 19.5" (495 mm) long [18.5" (470 mm) useable length], incl. large machined safety stop knob. Optional 9" (229 mm) shaft extension available.
Weight of mount

Total: 114.0 lb. (51.8 kg)
R.A. axis/polar fork: 58.5 lb. (26.6 kg)
Dec. axis: 38.5 lb. (17.5 kg)
Dec. top plate 3.0 lb. (1.4 kg)
Counterweight shaft: 14 lb. (6.4 kg)

Capacity Approximately 220 lb. (100 kg) of scope and accessories, depending on length. Recommended for refractors up to 250 mm, 18-20" Cassegrains, Ritchey-Chretiens and CDKs.

These are only guidelines. Some telescopes are very long for their weight or heavy for their size and will require a larger mount. Remember also that imaging requirements are more rigid than visual observation. Maximum capacity may require the use of the 9" extension (M12675)
