The joy of flexibility – The joy of two or more telescopes on the same mount
Many amateur astronomers uses more than one telescope or dream about it. Sometimes you want to use the ultra sharp refractor and sometimes you want the big light bucket. Sometimes you want to image wide field objects and sometimes you want to take a high resolution image of a small galaxy. With the telescope mounts from Track The Stars you can setup for it all.
One Telescope on the mount
Often you just want to use a single telescope for your observations. The mount system gives the following options for this.
|TTS-160 Panther Mount with the Topmount saddle.|
Suitable for larger telescopes. The solution to be used with the Telescope rOTAtor. Shown with TEC-140 APO.
|TTS-160 Panther Mount with one side mounted dovetail saddle. Optimal for small and medium size telescopes when you want a light setup. No counterweights needed.||TTS-300 Mammoth mount with a single large telescope on the topmount. Shown with Celestron 14" SCT.|
Two Telescopes on the mount
Is the refractor or the larger reflector the better on Jupiter? Compare the sun in H-alpha and white light. Try the delight of a large Bino-scope. Both the Panther and the Mammoth Telescope Mount offers several possibilities for mounting two telescopes in parallel.
|TTS-160 Mount with Two sidemounted telescopes for H-alpha and white light observations. Lunt 152mm THA, Meade 8" SCT||TTS-160 Panther Mount with 120 mm Bino-Scope (by Euro-EMC).||TTS-300 Mammoth Mount with topmounted Celestron C14 and sidemounted Televue 70mm Pronto.|
Three Telescopes on the mount
Even three or more telescopes moving together always keeping the eyepieces in perfect position. Planetary imaging and short exposure deep sky imaging can be done right away. For long exposure astrophotography we recommend the Telescope rOTAtor or a dedicated camera rotator depeding on telescope size and weight.
