Takahashi/Hutech AZ Slow Motion Stage Package

We have decided to include Hutech mounting plate (#KD102) with Takahashi AZ slow motion stage since it perfectly fits each other. See my setup.

Personally I don’t think I need the adjustment stage for regular guiding since I don’t have the problem to locate proper guide stars. But this setup makes me ready for the comet nucleus guiding any time the comet shows up.  So I decide to do this way all the time.

The stage is mechanically well-designed and -made. It’s a kind of must-item for comet nucleus guiding.

Specs are

– 2 x M8 at 35mm separation at bottom

– 2 x M6 at 35mm separation and 1 x 1/4-20(center) at top

– Adjustable +/- 10 degree vertically and +/- 5 degree horizontally

– 680g
