- Are you dreaming of your own observatory with multiple telescopes?
- Do you have limited space for the observatory?
The TTS-300 Mammoth is an upscaled version af the TTS-160 Panther. Read more about the functionality of the TTS-160 to learn about the TTS-300.
The TTS-300 Mammoth is a unique observatory class mount. The compact design and the movement pattern of the mount make it possible to fit a large telescope into a small observatory building.
The mount is compact and the counter weight arms are placed directly under the telescope tube. Observers can move around in the observatory without hitting the mount in the dark.
The mount can be started in seconds making it as fast as ever to start an observation session. The alignment and position are kept in the internal memory. Remote control of the mount is possible through the PC interface.
For visual observations the TTS-300 Mammoth offers several great advantages:
|The Telescope rOTAtor can be used with the TTS-300 mount as with the TTS-160. For telescopes up to 20kg this is a very good solution.||For very big telescopes a camera de-rotator can be used as on all major professional telescopes. The flexibility of the mount system makes it possible to do almost anything.|
