ASA Direct Drive Mount DDM160


This absolutely monstrous in terms of power Equatorial mount is the flagship in ASA's mount series; 160 mm thick hollow axles and many hundred newton meters of torque has brought into being one of the most stable mounts of the century, and it shows in this incredible piece of hardware's performance. Entirely apart from its impressively sized axles, this top quality model is also equipped with extremely accurate encoders. As an additional plus, the entire outer shell is manufactured with highly graded carbon fibre, making its optical appearance stand out among its class.

The DDM 160 was designed as an Equatorial pier mount- that is, it's meant for permanent installation with the included mounting plate, rather than use with a tripod. This has the happy side effect in that since measurements are client specific, the equatorial pier can be aligned exactly according to its installation site. The DDM 160 also has a loading capacity (instrument weight) of up to 300 kg (660 lbs), a truly incredible weight capacity far exceeding what most people will use- absolutely guaranteeing that almost no matter what your set up, you can mount it on this beast of a Equatorial mount! Furthermore, its guiding accuracy is next to none and can easily be compared to large, meter class modern telescope systems. Like on all of ASA's mounts, the "Autoslew" software provides perfect services. ASA's DDM160 mount is delivered with a complete software package and options such as autopointing, precision tracking and internet remote control.
