FAQ

Q:
Is this mount capable of mounting a 1200mm long 6" Dobsonian?
A:
The Multipurpose programmable mount is primarily for Cameras and will not be very suitable for your 6" Dobsonian as the length of the tube is too long. I would recommend a Saxon EQ5 Mount for your 6" Dobsonian. We have one available from Saxon here http://www.ozscopes.com.au/saxon-eq5-mount-w-steel-tripod.html
Q:
I'm interested in this mount to use for panoramic photography. Do you have a PDF manual for the unit so I can see if I can interface to it to control what I need.
A:
Yes, you can download it from this link: http://www.skywatchertelescope.net/swtsupport/Instruction_Manuals/Multi-function%20mount.pdf
