Orion HDX110 EQ-G GoTo Equatorial Mount

The Orion HDX110 EQ-G equatorial mount offers ultra high precision and a solid frame capable of carrying up to 110 pounds in equipment while still maintaining excellent tracking.  +/-3 arcsecond tracking without PEC (Periodic Error Correction). The HDX 110 from Orion provides stability and accuracy for demanding imaging and observing setups.  This is a complete set up which includes both the mount head, tripod/pier, counterweights and all electronics.

Featuring robust, observatory-grade electronics which includes high resolution, micro-stepped stepper motors and patented dual-encoder technology which allows both automated operation and manual slewing, without losing the initial GoTo alignment.  The alignment is so well maintained that once it has been successfully completed, you can loosen the RA and DEC clutches to reposition the mount with telescope attached and you will still be accurately aligned upon relocking the clutches! 

Utilizing Orion's SynScan GoTo controller, the Orion HDX110 can be pointed to anyone of the 42,000 objects in the database with ease.  It also allows for a highly accurate polar alignment routine that doesn't require a polar aligning scope - or a view of Polaris. This smart mount also offers permanent periodic error correction (PPEC) to improve on the already excellent PEC.  The correction is saved from session to session.

The HDX110 Mount's EQ head features 8.6" (219.5mm) Right Ascension (RA) and Declination (Dec) worm wheels with 435 gear teeth and a thick RA and Dec shaft diameter of 55mm. It's equipped with an autoguider port, ultra smooth latitude jackscrew with a 10°-65° range, precise azimuth adjustment knobs (+/- 10° range from center), SNAP port (for DSLR shutter control), and ON/OFF switch. The mount head itself weighs 55 lbs. and it's equipped with two large handles that make it easy to lift. The 1.25"-diameter stainless steel counterweight shaft threads securely into the mount head. The saddle is a wide, "Losmandy" or "D style" clamp plate with three locking hand knobs.

This model of the HDX110 includes the equatorial mount head, counterweight shaft, GoTo hand controller, tripod/pier and cables. The HDX110 instruction manual includes schematic plans of the mount's baseplate with dimensions for those interested in attaching the HDX110 telescope mount to a permanent pier or a preferred tripod. The Orion HDX110 EQ-G GoTo Mount requires a 12V DC, 4A power supply or field-battery for motorized operation. A 12V DC power cable with auto-lighter plug and threaded connector to the mount is included.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

The Orion HDX110 mount specifies that it has to have a current of at least 4 amps to run. There is an Orion AC-to-2amp-DC power cord listed in your on-line store for this mount as an accessory, but nothing large enough to run the mount. In other on-line stores I saw an Orion AC-to-5amp-DC power adaptor cord available for purchase. Is it possible that Orion has more accessories available to the public than we see in your on-line store? Thanks. Bill

Your pictures of this item show a hard case for the mount head, yet a case is not listed under your "included items". Which is it? Is the case included or not?
