GSO MGF
Geared Alt Azimuth Mount

 

This import mount will hold up to 20 pounds. It has a Vixen style dovetail shoe for use with our TP10 or TP14 rails for quick set up and disconnect. The mount can be moved manually and set so that the slow motion controls take over when needed.

There are 120 tooth worm gears on each axis allowing smoth slow motion control using the two knobs. There is also one slow motion cable for use with our longer refractors.

When transporting the mount, the fork arm may be removed by unscrewing two bolts. This results in a short mount head and a tripod that is only 31” long. It will fit easily in a duffle bag for transport. The mount and tripod weigh less than 14 pounds total.

This mount damps out vibrations in a few seconds. While our M2 mount dampens out vibration much faster and has zero backlash (you will notice a little play in each axis with the MGF), this mount has geared slow motion movements which the M2 does not have. So now Stellarvue customers have a choice when it comes to selecting a portable, easy to use, grab and go mount.
