Meade MAX Robotic German Equatorial Mount Telescope Mounting System Product Info

The Meade MAX Robotic German Equatorial Mount is a mounting system for large Meade Telescopes, imagesuch as the Meade LX400-ACF OTA Telescope. These Meade MAX EQ Mounts are designed by practiced and experienced observers for the most demanding observers. Meade MAX Robotic German EQ Mounts feature a unique modular design that allows a couple of individuals to assemble, either permanently or transportably, a mount twice the size of any other commercially available mount. The mount breaks down into a Portable Pier (tripod), Pedestal, RA Housing Assembly, and DEC Housing Assembly. Together all of the components and an OTA (Optical Tube Assembly) fit easily into a station wagon, SUV, minivan or small truck. When assembled, quick release dovetail plates allow OTA and instrument packages up to 250 lbs to be quickly mounted and de-mounted.

Meade MAX Robotic German Equatorial Mounts are available in the following models:

  • MAX-00: Meade MAX Robotic German Equatorial Mount with Tripod - The MAX mount tripod can be transported or permanently installed. It provides a wide stance to assure that it can safely carry MAX's massive payload in all orientations, but still collapses down to a size that is easy to handle.
  • MAX-02: Meade MAX Robotic German Equatorial Mount with AZ Altazimuth Pier - The MAX mount pier is designed for permanent installation. It has been designed to safely carry MAX's massive payload in all orientations. Whether being mounted in a professional observatory, or in an amateur's back yard, the pier is durable to withstand vibration and strong enough to carry the weight of the MAX mount and Telescope payload. The Pier height must be specified at the time of order.
