Made in Japan, the AXJ GoTo mount was developed for professional applications and combines precision with the latest STARBOOK TEN computer control technology.
Designed as a complement to the AXD2 equatorial mount, the AXJ mount offers outstanding durability and precision.
The AXJ mount can also be used on AXD-TR102 tripods with an adapter.
Periodic errors on mounts are usually measured and corrected by the user. Unlike the old StarBook controller, the STAR BOOK TEN controller saves these errors permanently. The periodic error of the mount is measured in the factory (total of 12 points per 30 degrees worm gear) and corrected before delivery. This is known as V-PEC and functions automatically as soon as you use the mount. It delivers an accuracy of +/- 4.0 arc seconds. You can increase the tracking accuracy further by saving your own recorded periodic errors.
