The Paramount ME™ Robotic Telescope System features a German equatorial mount with research-grade 11-inch right ascension gears that provide unsurpassed tracking performance.
Astronomers equipped with a Paramount ME are defining new levels of reliability, productivity and performance. Hefting up to 150 pounds of astronomical equipment, and designed for uninterrupted operation, the Paramount ME can be used as a remote or Internet Astronomy™ solution. Through advanced CNC construction, it is field portable at 68 pounds.
The system includes the Bisque Observatory Software Suite (TheSky6™ Professional Edition, CCDSoft™, TPoint™ and ProTrack™, Orchestrate™, and Internet Astronomy™ Software Client and Server applications) as well as the MKS 4000 dual-axis DC servomotor control system with USB and serial interface, and AutoHome™ start-up.
The Paramount ME is built for the digital age, featuring integrated telescope and CCD camera control, unattended start-up and automated operation, seven (7) arcseconds or less peak-to-peak periodic error before correction, and precision guided or unguided tracking (using TPoint and ProTrack™).
It's no coincidence that Paramount ME has quickly become the mount of choice for the world's top amateur imagers, as well as many schools and research institutions. Check out the Who's Using the Paramount ME? page for more information.
