The 10 Micron GM1000 HPS Aries package includes all the accessories needed to start using your mount. This bundle includes the following items:
- 10 Micron Aries tripod
- 12V to 24V power supply
- 1 x 3kg counterweight
- 1 x 6kg counterweight
- Soft carrying bags for mount
- MGBox V2 GPS weather station
The 10 Micron Aries tripod is designed for the GM1000 HPS mount and is the most rigid and lightweight observatory-class tripod on the market. It has been engineered to perfectly sustain the mount accuracy provided by the HPS encoders, meaning it perfectly resists mechanical torsions, absorbs vibrations and gives the highest possible stability of any collapsible-leg tripod.
The switching power supply is a very high quality device with full Australian certification. It accepts 110 to 240V AC input, with the output ensuring the proper 24V, 5A (120W) power supply to the GM1000.
The package includes both a 3kg and 6kg counterweight to allow precise balancing of most imaging systems. Machined from stainless steel, 10 Micron counterweights are incredibly resistant to harsh environmental conditions.
The 10 Micron Cordura bags are designed to reuse the shaped padding included in the transport cardboard box provided with the mount. This is an inexpensive system to safely transport the mount and its accessories when you travel to your preferred observation site.
The Astromi.ch MGBox V2 is a small, lightweight GPS weather station that provides positional information, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity and dew point information with superb accuracy.
