The HAZ31 Strain Wave go-to mount is very similar to the popular iOptron AZ-Pro mount. But by using strain-wave technology, no counterweights are required for loads up to 31 lbs.! This means even heavier binoculars, like our BT-127XL-SD, can be used on the TR3 tripod. If you need an elevator, mount it on the Manfrotto 161MK2B tripod. Strain-wave mounts have been on the market for some time now, but none are as affordable as the HAZ31. Because nothing else is required to use it with one of our binocular telescopes and tripods, the cost of the HAZ31 is only $225 more than the AZ Pro with required accessories. With all black-anodized aluminum construction, this mount looks great on our tripods as well! Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors, the HAZ31 calculates its global position as well as the binocular telescope orientation. Automatically the mount slews the binocular to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.
For manual operation in daylight, simply cancel the auto-setup at power-up, select a slew speed (9=MAX), then use the arrow buttons to move the binocular in any direction. Manual control is also available while in go-to mode.
Operates on 12VDC (120VAC adapter included), we recommend adding the optional lithium-ion power bank.
