Equatorial mount from beginners to experienced observers

The Advanced Polaris equatorial mount is ideally suited for beginners who want to become familiar with equatorial mount or experienced observers who want a simple grab and go mount. The AP mount securely supports your telescope optical tube for comfortable observing. With its friction control system, the mount can be quickly moved to your target object. A wide selection of optional accessories are available for the AP mount to meet your observation needs.

Stylish design

The new stylish and smart design removes a difficult image on astronomical telescopes. Together with just 3.6kg lightweight body (without counterweight), you can easily handle full-scale astronomical telescopes. As the four AA batteries for power supply is integrated inside the body and adoptin of internal electrical contacts eliminates successfully external wiring which exposed to the outside in the past.

Friction control system

Simply point the target objects by moving the optical tube by hands. The friction control system allows you to manually point the telescope at the object without using knobs and clamps.

Simple polar alignment

The optional polar meter can be attached on the equatorial mount for simple polar alignment. Even beginners can quickly align polar axis. For precision alignment, the polar axis scope is usually used, but the polar meter can outperforms especially where Polaris is not visible.

Polar alignment scope PF-L

The polar alignment scope PF-L features an employment of three stars alignment system and built-in dark field illuminator to enable alignment while looking into the polar alignment scope. This illumination powers off automatically to prevent unnecessary consumption of power.Corresponding to the polar alignment scope PF-L, we delivers free applications "PFL Assist" for smartphone and tablet that support polar alignment by visuallizing a visible position in the constellation displayed.
