All 10Micron mounts incorporate a range of useful technological features that other mounts do not have, and will not have, for the foreseeable future, and will forever change the workflow of observers or astroimagers.
The GM mounts utilise two high-precision proprietary (1/10th arcsec resolution) absolute encoders that are mounted directly on each axes. These encoders provide very impressive high precision GoTo pointing (typically to within 20 arc secs) and tracking accuracy (<1 arcsec).
10Micron mounts are manufactured, assembled and tested in Italy. Much of this process is still carried out by hand by 10Micron’s skilled engineers & technicians.
