What's a Parallactic Mount?
      #5608220 - 01/06/13 12:12 PM

In the description for this forum, there is the mention of a Parallactic Mount. Nothing much shows up doing a web search on it ... so, what is it?

It refers to and is otherwise known as the german equatorial mount (GEM) design.

The term is generally more used in Europe.

Hope that helps..,
