Software Bisque Taurus Fork Mount
"Paramount Pedigree in an Equatorial Fork Design"
This says it all. The same excellence in engineering and design that Bisque has become known for in their Paramount EQ mount series has been applied to an equatorial fork mount. Designed with the serious astronomer and professional market in mind, the Taurus is built to carry large astrographs and telescopes up to 0.6 meters and has a robust load capacity of 400 pounds. A surprisingly compact mount can be set up by one person if need be as it breaks down into 5 manageable pieces. Opttional sub-0.1 arcsecond resolution on-axis encoders are available for applications requiring extreme accuracy. Included belt driven gears with spring loaded worm to gear interface results in virtually zero backlash. Additional features include ample space for through mount cabling, all electronics and wiring housed within the mount for a clean and organized system. Power supply and PC to mount cables are included as is the full Bisque Paramount Software Suite which includes SkyX Pro, Camera Add On, Dome Add On ProTrack, Direct Guide, Super Model, All Sky Image Link, and Closed Loop Slews among others for full mount, dome and camera control.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Hiro Kaneiso on Mar 14, 2016 4:15:00 AMTechnically, no, as you cannot operate this mount from any software other than the included TheSkyX Professional software. You can then talk to the mount through other "shell" programs using the ASCOM "TheSky controlled telescope", but TheSkyX must be running to actually talk to the mount.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Mar 15, 2016 4:57:00 PM
