An interesting application involving a gear-drive Taurus 400 appears in this Sky & Telescope magazine article.
The Taurus is assembled from five separate components, each weighing less than 100 pounds (45 kg), making it the most easily deployable mount in its class. A two-person team can fully assemble the Paramount Taurus™ in about one hour.
In addition to unsurpassed pointing and tracking accuracy, Paramounts are also known for their reliability and straightforward operation. They just go, night after night, as it should be!
