Losmandy G11GT Equatorial Mount with FHD-MA Tripod & Gemini GoTo System - G11GT


Losmandy G11GT Gemini 2 Equatorial Mount with FHD-MA Tripod

The modular Losmandy G11GT Equatorial Mount comes with the Titan RA Axis and the G11 Dec Axis for amazing performance and a big 75-pound weight capacity. Losmandy mounts are machined from stainless steel and aluminum in California and have a much-deserved reputation for being one of the finest precision mounts in the world. A spring-loaded worm has been added to the RA and DEC axis for the mount. The gear diameter of the G11GT is 172mm for precise tracking under load. The tucked in motors, which are new to the G11GT, make for cleaner lines and easier transport. This G11GT comes with the large FHD-MA tripod and the tried-and-true Gemini 2 GoTo electronics.
