Paramount Direct-Drive Instrument Rotator

An instrument rotator is essential for eliminating field rotation on Paramount Apollo altazimuth mounts, and can make astrophotography tasks, such as field orientation on Paramount Taurus equatorial fork mounts simple. The same benefits extend to the Paramount Duo which can operate in altazimuth or equatorial mode.
