Direct Drive mount « Nova » by SkyVision
      #5448563 - 09/30/12 02:12 PM

We are pleased to introduce our new high precision robotic mount « NOVA », equipped with Direct-Drive engines.

Engines are directly mounted on axes with no additional connecting-part or speed-reduction machinery.
The very-high-resolution encoders used to drive the engines encoders (26 milliseconds of arc by step, providing more than 48 million steps per revolution) allow a very high pointing and tracking accuracy.
The mount includes an Ethernet interface, which provides network reliability and connection capabilities. The mount operating software supports both standalone and ASCOM-protocol-controlled modes, making the mount easy to control using any mount-driving software
For further informations see the SkyVision Nova web page : http://www.skyvision.fr/wordpress/?page_id=2072&lang=en
The Direct Drive mount "Nova" will be presented to the RCE show in Paris La Villette from 2nd to 4th November.

Here is a small picture of our Direct Drive mount "Nova 120G".


The telescope is a SkyVision OTN 400 (16" Observatory Telescope Newton).
It is a "heavy" Newton of 60kg. In this configuration, we have tested the mount at 15°/s, and the tracking accuracy is still of very high quality.
More results, in image & video, to follow soon.
