The Mesu-Mount 300 is equipped, as standard, with two high resolution absolute Renishaw encoders.

These encoders give 67 million pulses per rotation, an accuracy of 0.02 arc-seconds/pulse in RA and Declination.

With absolute encoders, after a one time first alignment, the position of the telescope is always known after switching on the mount.

With this mount it’s possible to track “diffraction limited” with even a 50cm (20″) telescope.

The resolution of the telescope, and the seeing, will have more effect on the tracking accuracy then the capabilities of the Mesu-Mount 300.

The whole system is controlled by the Servo Controller II made by Sidereal Technology (USA).
