Due to its altazimuthal design, this special mount isn’t suitable for astrophotography and for most of the amateur activities.
The original AZ2000 was also produced in the special “Antarctica” version, which was able to work at the extreme low temperature of -84°C (-119F). Special mechanical and electronic considerations were necessary in order to design and produce this peculiar mount: from the correct choice of material and sizes to the use of special and very expensive lubricants, wiring and connectors. A special housing was also designed to protect against temperature and ice crystals formation and which needed different levels of seals depending on the effective operational temperature.$13,970.00 USDSpecial Order
