Description

These are the enhancements with the new Mesu-200 mounts.

– Cable management is through the centre  via two 80mm holes.

– You can lock the axis in any position you like.

– You can decouple the motors for easy balancing.

– Motor encoders now have 16.000.000 ticks/rev. instead of 8.000.000.

– The RA axis can traverse >360 degrees whereas with the old mount it was 180 degrees with 45 degrees meridian overlap, then a flip.

– The drive mechanism has been improved by tweaking dimensions and materials.

– The weight of the mount has decreased by 10kg while stiffness is improved.

– Separation of head and Latitude adjustment mechanism is a Mesu innovation, significant Latitude adjustment is rarely necessary in the UK, so why supply 90 degrees of adjustment?

The result is a  17kg mount with a load capacity of 100kg………

This new version builds on the work put into the original design with features borrowed from the Mesu 300 and some modern tweaks.
