Ultra-nomadic dual axis goto mount : SkyWatcher AZ-GTI
SkyWatcher AZ-GTI mount
in equatorial mode
The AZ-GTI mount allows to have a dual-axis motorized ultra-light nomadic setup.
I use if in combination with a Samyang 135 f:2, Canon 200 f:2.8 or Evoguide 50ED.
Thank to a USB/AZ-GTI Eqmod cable, I remotely control the mount with Stellarmate installed on a RPi4.
For long exposures, guiding is ensured by a 35x135mm guidescope + RisinSky 224 camera.
To allow a precise polar alignmen, I use a Polemaster. To attach it to the mount, I have designed, 3D-printed and glued to the mount.
This short movie shows a setup with a Samyang 135 f:2 attached to the mount.
