BORG 55FL F3.6 & Takahashi Portable Mounts with Arca Swiss

55FL F3.6 package set is now in the market in Japan and will be soon available in other countries.

I shot Auriga before too. But I didn’t realize 200 mm + full frame reached up to M37 as well.  So it was not included in my frame. This is really nice composing. I like that very much.

As a result of playing around Takahashi portable mounts long time while changing various configurations, I have concluded followings are my suggested setup, mostly as my personal favorite. Basic concept is to use Arca Swiss accessories. It’s reliable, light and compact. Wide variety of brands and items are available in the market. Best match with portable mounts.

PM-SP (right) : With panning clamp, which works as DEC rotator. Hutech adapter (prototype)  allows to set a panning head at the top of following weight and shaft set (CWS) plateset

PM-1 and PM-SP are the modular design. So each user can change the configuration based on its favorite and requirement. This is just one example as German equatorial mode.
