The HitecAstro Mount Hub Pro Ultimate is the next evolution of The Mount Hub Pro…
The Mount Hub Pro has integrated a number of the important accessories commonly used for an astro set-up. This has enabled astronomers to simplify their set-up and reduce the dreaded cable mess which can be so problematic.
By placing the device between the telescope and the mount, the Mount Hub Pro Ultimate provides a solid and convenient location.
Its integrated USB Hub, Stepper Motor focus controller, Power and Dew ports can be reached easily from the telescope meaning that cabling moves as a unit completely eliminating the possibility of trailing cables snagging and cutting your observing or imaging night short.
Additionally the MHP Ultimate provides those with remote observatories a secure and reliable methodology for reducing complexity and thus decreasing the chance of a failure.
The housing of the MHP has been precision CNC machined from a solid block of high grade aluminium and black anodised thus delivering maximum strength to enable it to carry even the
heaviest of loads.
The top of the unit is fitted with a quality ‘Losmandy’ style dovetail to receive your telescope.
A male dovetail is fitted underneath to ensure a secure fitting to the vast majority of mounts. Additionally the male dovetail can be removed revealing a range of hole patterns designed to fit many of the popular mounts enabling a direct connection between the mount hub pro ultimate and mounts such as Astro-Physics, Paramount and many others.
The MHP Ultimate integrates a host of features
- Power in socket ensuring only one power cable needs to run to your setup.
- 4 x Power outlets to power your equipment
- Integrated 3 port powered USB hub.
- 3 x dew ports supporting all the major brands of dew heaters such as ‘Kendrick’ and ‘DewNot’
- High Quality Stepper motor focus controller which supports any uni-polar stepper motor focuser such as ‘Robo-Focus’, ‘Moonlite’, ‘Lakeside’ or our own Motor/Bracket package
