Takahashi EM-500 Temma-2M


The state-of-the-art EM-500 Temma IIM mount has a tracking accuracy that is guaranteed to +/- 3.5 arc seconds without periodic error correction and it runs off of 12V DC. The EM-500 Temma IIM slews at 560X the Sidereal rate. The Temma IIM GoTo System can be operated via The Sky, Level IV software. The mount can also be operated in manual (non-GoTo) mode without connecting to a computer and dual-axis tracking is available in this mode.

The self-contained illuminated polar finder is accurate to two arc minutes of the pole. Autoguider and CCD cables are available for most CCD cameras including serial, RJ-11, and USB connectors. Main gears are phosphor-bronze with matching moly-steel worms for greater accuracy and durability vs. aluminum & stainless steel. New, precision micro-stepping motors provide high durabilty with softer pulse-peaks for better imaging. No need for servos and variable-voltage systems that reduce longevity. Operated via PC or Advanced Hand Control.
