Paramount MyT Robotic Telescope Mount

**Please call or email for pricing and availability**

Experience Paramount performance in a highly portable grab and go type of mount.

Weighing only 15kg or 34 lbs the MyT mount can take up to 50lbs of telescope and gear.

The Paramount MYT (pronounced “mighty”) Robotic Telescope Mount is a German equatorial mount designed from the base up to provide unsurpassed stability and performance for portable, semi-portable, or permanent installations. Other than its smaller stature and lower total payload capacity, the Paramount MYT incorporates essentially every feature found in the higher capacity Paramount ME II and Paramount MX+ models.

The Paramount MYT includes the following items:
Hardware
 Paramount Mighty mount
 Hand controller with integrated joystick
 One stainless steel 20 lb. counterweight
 One stainless steel counterweight shaft
 One OTA mounting plate (Versa-Plate)
 80W (48V 1.7A max) Power supply unit
 15-foot USB cable
 Bubble level
 Hex wrench set
Software
 The Paramount Software Suite, including:
o TheSkyX Professional Edition for Mac and Windows
o The Camera Add On for Mac and Windows
o The TPoint Add On for Mac and Windows
o Multi-OS and Six License Add On allows installation on up to six different computers

Specifications
 23 kg/50 lb. maximum payload capacity (not including counterweights).
 46 kg/100 lb. maximum payload capacity (including counterweights).
 11 cm (4.3 in.) right ascension and declination bearings provide maximum stability.
 6 degrees per second maximum slew rate in both right ascension and declination.
 High-torque precision brushless DC-servo motors (the same motors used in the Paramount ME II and Paramount MX+ model mounts).
 All aluminum body.
 Research-grade brass right ascension gears with seven (7) arcseconds or less peak-to-peak periodic error, before applying periodic error correction (PEC).
 Motion control provided by the MKS 5000™, Software Bisque’s fourth generation dual axis control system.
 Maximum of two (2) hours tracking past the meridian.
 Instrument Panel on the Versa-Plate includes an integrated guider port, two USB ports, one 5V 1A max power supply port, one 12V 1A max power supply port, pulse focuser port, and a generic through the mount power supply cabling port.
 Integrated equatorial wedge allows polar axis elevation adjustments from 0° to 64°.
 Integrated polar axis azimuth adjustments offer plus or minus 7 degrees range (14 degrees total).
 Mount operation is integrated with TheSkyX Professional Edition for Mac or Windows.
 Camera Add On™ software provides single software telescope, camera, focuser, filter wheel, SBIG AO and rotator control.
 TPoint Add On™ with Super Model™ and ProTrack™ provides the same telescope pointing correction software that is used on most professional telescopes.
 The Multi-OS and Six License Add On lets you install TheSkyX Professional Edition and related Add Ons on up to six (6) different Mac and Windows computers.
 Optimal periodic error correction curve fitting that can produce “seeing indifferent” periodic error curves.
 DirectGuide™ allows optimal guiding without a separate guider cable.
 TPoint assisted tracking via ProTrack™ makes unguided photo acquisition a reality
 Both the right ascension and declination axes include mechanical switches to change quickly switch between balancing the payload and tracking.
 Configurable acceleration and deceleration rates during slews.
 Temperature adjusted maximum slew rates effectively increase the maximum motor torque to mitigate stalls during cold temperature operation.
 Integrated homing sensors that allow rapid mount initialization to produce precision and reliable repeatability from night to night, or if power is lost.
 Super-stable physical design that rapidly dampens external vibrations
 Software slewing limits can be configured from TheSkyX Pro to prevent damage to the mount and telescope by slowly decelerating to limit regions.
 Fifty separate conductors of through the mount cabling to minimize the tedium of having CCD power, CCD signal, focus, video, dew heater, and other accessory cables routed to the telescope.
 The control system supports a wide dynamic range for slewing and tracking rates. Virtually any slew speed is available between stopped and several degrees per second.
