Losmandy G-11G Equatorial Mount with FHD Tripod
Gemini GoTo System & RA Extention Factory-Installed



This GM11G will have the Losmandy RA Extension Kit (RAEXK) installed at the factory. It allows you to easily separate the RA from the Declination axis for transport and storage. Scroll to the end for more info on the RAEXK.



The Losmandy G-11 Equatorial Mount and Tripod is one of the most precise and finely crafted telescope mounts available today. The Losmandy G-11 Mount is a beautifully machined mount made of aluminum and stainless steel. This mount provides astrophotographers with a solid platform to mount their mid-to-large-size Schmidt Cassegrains and Refractors along with the other instruments that constitute their astrophotography rig.

  • The Losmandy G-11 Equatorial Mount has a 60 lb weight capacity


  • Laser engraved latitude scales and setting circles


  • The Losmandy G11 weighs 92 lb including the 21 lb counterweight


  • 0-68º latitude range


  • Ships with OPW one-piece worm block on both axes


  • Comes with tucked motors for a streamlined look and easier transport


  • Thie G11G includes the Gemini II GoTo System


  • This version of the Losmandy G-11 includes the FHD Heavy-Duty Tripod


  • The FHD weighs 35 lb

The Losmandy Gemini GoTo System is a servo motor based computerized positioning system for the Losmandy Mounts. Losmandy has updated the Gemini GoTo System to include a newly enhanced CPU and increased memory. Perhaps most impressive is the interactive color touch screen that comes with the Losmandy Gemini 2 Go-To System.




The Gemini 2 GoTo System is incredibly precise and the choice of astrophotographers worldwide. Precise object tracking is achieved as a result of the servo motor system Losmandy utilizes. The servo motor system runs with a continuous and smooth rotation, for better tracking. Further, the Losmandy system has an elevated level of torque which allows it to produce slewing rates of up to 8° per second with the GM-8 mount, 6° per second with the G-11 and 5° per second with the Titan Mount. The Losmandy Gemini system is a great instrument for use in the field because it can be run as a stand-alone system. With a 40,000 object database and an illuminated Color LCD touch screen, this mount is a pleasure to use. Powering the unit is simple; all you need is a 3A, 12-18 Volt DC power supply. Check out our list of specifications and features pertaining to the Losmandy Gemini 2 Drive System:



Losmandy Gemini 2 Go-To System Features:




  • Full Color Graphic Touch Screen clearly displays all functions


  • Classic four-button pattern for guiding, centering, moving, and slewing on both the touch screen and on a tactile membrane on the rear surface


  • Support for the original four-button controller


  • Can be used on all Losmandy GM8, G-11, & Titan mounts


  • Custom mount support using the Programmable Gear Rate function


  • 0.5 arcsec positional accuracy


  • DC Servos for improved accuracy, with higher torque than stepper motors


  • GPS-compatible with optional receiver


  • Stand-alone system: No PC is required for operation


  • English, German, French, & Spanish displays


  • Ethernet 10/100 with full IP function permits operation from anywhere using a browser, ASCOM, or app over the web or serial port


  • Non-Volatile Memory and Real-Time Clock


  • Over 40,000 objects stored in the database


  • USB ports: Virtual COM to PC, ASCOM or planetarium program


  • Port F: multi-function serial port; for A/D Input or Output


  • Firmware upgrade via internet


  • PEC: Periodic error correction


  • Auto-Guide port (TTL)


  • Dual 12~18 VDC input/output (3.0 A)


  • Tiltable control panel, for easy access during operation




Gemini 2 Celestial Database Includes:




  • 168 BSL


  • 303 Combined_Constellation_Stars


  • 5437 IC


  • 1125 LBN


  • 1787 LDN


  • 110 Messier Objects


  • 8290 NGC (New General Catalog)


  • 1143 PN


  • 17636 SAO (Smithsonian Ap. Obs.)


  • 313 Sh2


  • 223 Southern_Constellation_Stars


  • 3988 WDS





The CPU on the Gemini 2 System uses a mounted PC board as its base. This is a proven setup and is one of the most reliable in the field today. The main board has auto-guider and accessory ports, for full remote control (via the web) of the system from a computer from anywhere in the world. The Gemini 2 uses a Meade LX200 inspired command set. Clock and location information can be updated through a Losmandy GPS accessory that is sold separately.



Losmandy Folding HD Tripod Specifications:




  • All machined aluminum, black anodized, powder coated


  • Tripod height, adjustable from 33" - 48"


  • Extremely sturdy and rigid when assembled, for superior astrophotography


  • Removable leg design for easy transporting


  • Tripod (only) weight: 35 lb




Losmandy G11 RA Extension Kit



The Losmandy G11 RA Extension Kit is used to enable a Meridian Flip Through. This is accomplished by adding 1.5" to the RA body and lifting the saddle plate by 0.6". Prevents the motors from interfering when performing a Meridian Flip Through. In addition, this kit allows for the ability to easily remove the DEC axis from the RA axis. This comes in handy during transport as it makes breaking down the G11 into lighter components that are easier to manage, whether you use the Losmandy MCS Mount Case Set or not.




The Losmandy G-11 Mount and Tripod with Gemini 2 Go-To Drive is a top-performing astronomical instrument with an updated, modern drive. If you are an astrophotographer looking for an ideal mount to support your telescope, the Losmandy G-11 is for you.
