Takahashi Portable Mount PM-1X

As I already mentioned here, these are basically modified version of PM-1. Now each set is commercially available. PM-1 is the robust body and many nice features such as built-in precision polar scope and alt-az adjustment base etc. These are very good value. PM-1X is more compact and more suitable for imaging purpose while maintaining original good features.

  1. PM-1X, Single axis tracking mount : $1,495.00


This is a very basic set. To make the mount complete, it requires a saddle and dovetail plate or GEM kit etc.

2. PM-1XGEM1, German equatorial set (lighter counterweight version) : $1,595.00


3. PM-1XGEM2,  German equatorial set (heavier counterweight version) : $1,650.00

PM-1XGEM2The difference between above 2 and 3 is only a shaft and a counterweight.

Generally portable mounts are flimsy. But PM-1 is not like that at all. It’s really solid and stable.

We will write up more details at Hutech’s product section.

SIGMA 50mm F1.4 Art + SONY A7H + IDAS LPS-V4-52

All of SIGMA Art lenses don’t disappoint us.

BTW, I dropped down my SIGMA 35mm Art to the floor and still in service. It was shipped back to Japan. I’ve never used seriously yet……
