Custom made by Geoptik for 10 Micron for the GM2000 series mounts, the Pegasus is an exceptional high capacity wooden tripod, with a finely CNC machined and anodized aluminium base. The legs are made of “first choice” beech wood, treated for outdoor use. This material guarantees excellent stability and vibration damping, even with heavy loads.
Lightweight for its capacity at only 17kg, the Pegasus is capable of carrying a staggering 135kg payload. The height of the tripod can range from 970mm to 1080mm through extensible anodized aluminium extensions. Large 80mm polymeric pads give a very stable support for field use.
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, 6A (120W) power supply to the GM2000.
The Losmandy dovetail clamping plate 3” allows the use of standard Losmandy slide bar mounted optical tubes; this product is all CNC machined, black anodized aluminium.
The package includes both a 6kg and 12kg counterweight to allow precise balancing of most imaging systems. Machined from stainless steel, 10 Micron counterweights are incredibly resistant to harsh environmental conditions.
Taking care of your GM2000 mount will assure several years of great performance: the professional cases PLB ensure a very high level of protection. These cases are made in Italy with a special resin compound which offers a combination of high elasticity, increased shock absorption, reduced transport weight and resistance against temperature extremes. They also ensure a perfect barrier against dust, humidity, sand and ashes. The internal padding is perfectly shaped to accommodate the instruments.
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.
