SS-one Mount – Expedition & New Guide Scope/Camera

SS-one mount, controller and a new autoguider arrived today. I just built up the mount on Takahashi tripod. Since a bottom plate interface was a bit different from what I was expecting, this is the temporary loose setup. So I feel a bit risk for heavier scopes at this moment. The mount is very compact and solid. It is heavier than it looks like. So the weight is dense much in small area.

  1. A polar camera is set inside the mount body.
  2. In this setup( 55FL F3.6 + SONY A7), no dead area in the northern sky and no meridian flip required at all. Probably 71FL shouldn’t have either. I will double check later. Anyway much more chance to continue to take shots without switching the scope direction.
  3. 3.5″ screen all-in-one controller – KODO
  4. Now 140mm focal length guider is in stock – $395.00  This is the one-piece design. Flat body base eases mounting without rings and XY alignments.
