Avalon Mounts: Portable mounts for astronomical imaging
Goal: Total reliability
The Avalon LineAR and M-Uno Fast Reverse Mount are equatorial mounts designed for astronomical imaging. With a load capacity of 20-25 kg (44 – 55 lb) the mounts are unrivaled in their construction, qualitiy and price, and are sutiable for both visual and photographic observations. The M-Zero offers the same technology. With a load capacity of 8-13 kg, the low weight and high quality of this mount make it the ideal companion for travelling observers and astro-photographers. The M-Zeta, with a load capacity of 20 kg - 20+10kg in Dual Dec. Mode, an altazimuth Single-Arm mount, continues Avalon's tradition of cutting edge design and top quality performance.
