1600GTO German Equatorial Mount with APCC-Standard

High-quality Swiss DC servo motors controlled by a microprocessor to an accuracy of 0.05 arc-seconds per step are implemented in GTOCP4 drive system.Very smooth tracking enables PE correction to be very accurate. The system can be precisely controlled over a speed range of 4800:1, which allows 0.25x sidereal for manual guiding to 1200x sidereal for 5 degree per second slewing. Rigorously tested, only mounts that provide an accuracy of 7 arc seconds or better will pass this inspection. If the mount exhibits greater error, the substandard part is identified, replaced and the mount is retested.
