Located in Golden, Colorado, Software Bisque designs impeccable mounts with unparalleled attention to detail. Their Paramount series of robotic mounts are a popular choice among serious observers and astrophotographers alike because of their high-torque brushless motors and expansive weight capacity. Brushless servo motors provide fast slew speeds and consistent torque at all slew rates. Though good balance is always recommended, the Paramount has no problem slewing or tracking when several foot-pounds out of balance. You'll spend less time fiddling with the telescope and more time acquiring data.
Software Bisque Paramount mounts come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. The MYT is the most portable model, weighing only 34 lbs. Don’t be fooled! Although lightweight, the MYT still offers a maximum payload of 100lbs. The Paramount MEII Equatorial Mount is Software Bisque's flagship, research-grade equatorial mount. With an astonishing payload of 480 lbs and 11.4” Right Ascension gears, the MEII has a flawless reputation amongst serious astronomers and observatory owners for research-grade tracking and performance. Want the best of both mounts? The MX+ offers professional performance in a portable package, weighing in at just 50lbs.
