Meet the Paramount Apollo Altazimuth Mount
The Paramount Apollo™ altazimuth robotic mount delivers superior performance through careful integration of state-of-the art technology. Apollo combines advanced observatory-control software, the TPoint Total Pointing Integrity™ kernel, an industrial three-axis direct drive motion controller, precision CNC machined components, precision bearings, high-resolution, on-axis absolute encoders, and high-torque direct-drive motors that ensure optimal stability and long-term reliability and productivity.
Apollo™ employs the same three-axis TPoint ™ telescope pointing kernel that controls many of the world’s largest telescopes and thousands of amateur telescope mounts.
Apollo’s altazimuth fork-design operates within a relatively compact space to reduce the overall building size and system cost.
