Losmandy Titan EQ Mount Head - Gemini Servo System

This is the famous Losmandy Titan Equatorial Mount Head with motor drives and it includes the Gemini Servo System electronics. This massive Losmandy Titan HGMTITAN-FDH-MAL EQ Head is capable of carrying a 100 pound instrument capacity, with a 175lb total weight capacity. This mount is the definition of sturdy and robust! It provides super accurate pointing and tracking performance with heavy loads, which has made this mount a favorite with many astro-imagers, and visual astronomers as well.

NOTE: This product is the Head only, and the tripod and polar alignment scope are NOT included; also the telescope shown for illustration is NOT included.
