Product Description

Instruments loading (without counterweight): 13kg

Instruments loading (with counterweight): 18kg

Mount weight: 3.2kg

Super small and lightweight

The mount weighs only 3.3kg. Plus, it fits in one hand, so you don’t need a big bag for the mount.

Counterweights Not Required

Counterweights not required. Of course, no effort is required to balance.

Strain Wave Gear(Harmonic Drive)

Instead of worm gears, a new type of reducer called strain wave gear (harmonic drive) is used. Almost no backlash and no maintenance is required. As it is widely used in industrial robots, it is very durable.

CNC Machining

CNC machined aluminum alloy AL6061 is used for aircraft. That’s why it’s small, light and stiff. The beauty of the machined surface increases the collection value.


WiFi is built in. You can control the mount via the SkySafari app on your smartphone. Ascom Driver can be connected via WiFi as well as USB. GOTO and AutoGuide are now wireless.

GPS Receiver

GPS receiver is built in. The position and time of the observer can be entered accurately and conveniently.

Home Sensor

There is a built-in home sensor to find the mechanical origin. This is useful for permanently using Star Alignment data. Build an ultra-small remote observatory with the RST-135 mount.

Advantages of NEW Polar Alignment Base

  • Adjustment precision doubles
    The angle that changes when the adjustment knob is rotated one revolution has been changed
    Altitude: 2 degrees-> 1 degree
    Azimuth: 1.14 degrees-> 0.57 degrees
  • Altitude adjustment part backlash reduced
    Two additional bearings are used, and machining tolerances of the parts are minimized to significantly reduce backlash.
  • Increased adjustment convenience
    The shape of the altitude adjustment knob has been changed, making it easier to adjust without tools.
    As the bearing is added and the angle per rotation is reduced, a smaller force is required than before.
    The azimuth adjustment knob has been changed to allow the use of the T wrench provided with the mount.
  • Increased rigidity of the altitude adjustment part
    The possibility of breakage when operating with excessive force has been reduced.
