Avalon Instruments introduces the M-Zero the all-new Equatorial-Altazimut-Single-Arm mount with Fast-Reverse technology and more!

PORTABLE ASTRONOMY
The new M-Zero has been designed to revolutionize the world of portable astronomy. The unique and innovative design, the light weight and the small dimensions, the greater versatility and higher quality make it the perfect tool for the traveling astronomy. 

SEVERAL MOUNTS IN ONE
The M-Zero is more then one mounts: a Standard Equatorial when used with longer optics, a Single Arm with the great benefit of non requiring meridian flip using compact optics, an Alt-Azimuth mount for visual astronomy and, finally, an excellent time-lapse platform for panoramic photography and video shooting.

DOUBLE TELESCOPE SETUP
Thanks to the new Dual-DEC system, it is possible to install a second telescope in the opposite side of the declination axis. Considering this capability it is possible to use a great range of optics starting from a small (4-5 kg) refractor up to a double setup with a total weight of 12-13 kg, obtaining performances so good to get it over the need of a bigger mount.

TRANSPORTABILITY
The M-zero can be balanced, in most cases, with less than 1 kg counterweight due to the possibility of placing the declination arm in different positions relative to the right ascension arm. The M-zero and the T-pod 90, requiring limited room, may be easily arranged inside a medium size carry on case allowing a convenient setup for air traveling astro-amateurs.
 

stargo-on-tripod-rit-300stargo controller-300The StarGO control system has been designed to be wireless used also bymeans of a smartphone or a tablet, through the Bluetooth connection. The M-zero can be quickly set in the Alt-azimuthal mode for the visual observation with larger telescopes and binocular or to make panoramic pictures or video sequences with time-lapse features.

ZERO MAINTANANCE
The virtually zero maintenance, the long lasting materials used and the possibility to easily update the StarGO firmware and software allow the M-zero to be always ready to use, up to date, competitive and extremely reliable!

TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
The top quality construction level, the innovative Fast-Reverse with zero backlash technology and the new StarGO control system allow the M-zero to get excellent performances in the photographic use, with guided longer time expositions, even using 2 meters focal length telescopes such as 8__ SCT and RC.

THE PRECISE POLAR ALIGMENT OF THE MOUNT SHALL BE PERFORMED USING THE POLAR SCOPE MONTED ON THE M-ZERO.

The standard kit for the precise polar alignment is made up by the following components:

1. Polarscope stand provided of scope fixing knobs and dovetail attack with fixing grip knob.
2. Polarscope completed of graduated scale
3. Illuminator cap provided of red LED and connection cable to the StarGO.

THE KIT CAN BE PROVIDED WITH A LOSMANDY POLAR SCOPE

In this case the item 1 shall be of the type suitable to the Losmandy scope in which the graduated scale is not provided.

Another option that greatly facilitates the polar alignment operations is the special star diagonal. 

This optional component allows to perform the observations through the polar scope in a more confortable position. This option is available for both types of polar scopes.
