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

- 4mm Hex Wrench
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.
