Losmandy StarLapse – 2

I built up in regular dual-axes configuration. I noticed recent Losmandy sadle has dual interfaces for standard Losmandy D and Vixen-compatible ones. That’s good idea too. I didn’t know that…… See my setup.

strlps2My key concept as a portable mount is how to fully adjust weight balance while eliminating a counterweight. So StarLapse lets me achieve my goal. I can use a battery instead of a PET-bottle. So my StarLapse is now very versatile, which allows me for single-axis tracking for short focal length optics and casual visual observing, dual tracking with an autoguiding and time lapse movie. Very nice mount!!  It’s as portable as I wish and as stable as I expect. Like BORG, this modular design makes me fun to change configurations based on applications. Wonderful, Scott (Losmandy)!!

  1. Beautiful Set Up…How is the Polar scope of Losmandy? Does it have itched Ursa Major and Cassiopeia for alignment?
