Paramount Taurus 400

Unlike a German equatorial mount, the symmetric equatorial fork design does not require counterweights to balance the payload and permits horizon-to-horizon slews with no meridian flip.

Note that the pictured Paramount Taurus 400 Permanent Pier and OTA are sold separately.  Let Software Bisque help you determine the optimal height of the pier for your setup.
