Coupling precise tracking performance with a rock-solid telescope foundation in a surprisingly portable GoTo system, the compact Orion Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount has something to offer both astrophotographers and visual observers. Imagers will love the Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G's high quality tracking precision, while casual observers will get to explore an extensive database of more than 42,000 celestial targets. Capable of supporting one or two mid-sized telescopes, the Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G operates in equatorial GoTo mode when holding one telescope, and in altazimuth GoTo and tracking mode when holding one or two telescopes using side-by-side attachment.

The Orion Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount presents the user with a perfect combination of compact portability and precise performance with many imaging-friendly features. In equatorial mode, the sturdy Sirius Pro can hold up to 30 lbs. of equipment for stable support of imaging telescopes and trains of astrophotography gear. A narrow, Vixen-style dovetail saddle makes secure telescope attachment nice and easy. In EQ mode, the Sirius Pro dovetail saddle sits 48.7" above the ground with the pier-tripod legs extended, and 41" above the ground with legs retracted. Thanks to its low-profile tripod and 0°-90° latitude range, the Orion Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount can be used in any location on the planet. No matter where your favorite dark sky site is, the Sirius Pro will provide stable telescope support and accurate object-location and tracking for all astrophotographic and visual pursuits.

Because the Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G Mount has the ability to support two telescopes simultaneously, it can therefore be used to two different views of the night sky. Allowing two separate observers to explore the night sky at the same time in "dual-scope" Altazmiuth GoTo & Tracking Mode makes this mount ideal for star parties and group outreach stargazing sessions. Furthermore, by attaching a short focal length telescope to one side, and a long focal length telescope to the other, you can easily compare wide-field and high power celestial views. Each side is capable of supporting telescopes weighing up to 30 lbs. in altazimuth mode. Includes a removable secondary Vixen-style dovetail mounting saddle.

With the Orion Sirius Pro, you won't have to worry about cables getting tangled during long imaging sessions, since the built-in ST-4 autoguider port, USB-to-Serial port, and two DSLR shutter control ports are all located on a stationary mount head panel. Threaded motor and power cable jacks ensure connections remain secure. The high-performance Sirius AZ/EQ-G Mount also features Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC) for enhanced guiding accuracy. Convenient, built-in bubble levels help make the initial GoTo alignment process quick and easy. An improved, single-lever altitude adjustment system and large easy-grip R.A. and Dec. axis clutch wheels are delightfully easy to adjust, even while wearing bulky gloves on crisp, clear, and cold nights.

The Sirius Pro AZ/EQ-G is a highly transportable, yet seriously sturdy telescope mount. Without counterweights, this compact mount and foldable pier-tripod weigh in at 28.8 lbs. Fully assembled with the two included 7.5 lb. counterweights attached, the Sirius Pro weighs 43.8 lbs. This mount's counterweight shaft is retractable, and a 4.7" (12 cm) thread-on extension is included for balancing versatility. The low-profile tripod boasts extendable, 1.75" diameter stainless steel legs that won't interfere with attached telescopes during tracking. When collapsed, the mount measures just 28" long with the EQ head attached for easy portability and storage (pier-tripod folds to 25" long with mount head detached).

The computerized Orion Sirius AZ/EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount requires a 12V DC power supply such as an Orion Dynamo Rechargeable Power Station or an AC-to-DC adapter (both sold separately).
