The new high-capacity EVO-Quattro mount from Italian manufacturer Avalon Instruments is now available for pre-order. With a payload capacity of 250kg, the EVO-Quattro handles up to 25” telescopes in a single or double scope configuration. The mount is made entirely from anodized aluminum using high-precision CNC machines. It features the internal Avalon Belt Drive System composed of special polymer fiberglass pulleys and high precision timing belts to allow tracking without sudden spikes or backlash, while also promising long-lasting operation without maintenance. The mount uses the StarGo 2 Pro Go-To system and features high-resolution absolute encoders on both RA and DEC axes which enables accurate pointing and orientation even after a shutdown.
MSRP: 20,900 Euros (not including VAT)
Correction: The headline of this announcement has been corrected. The Avalon Instruments EVO-Quattro mount uses the Avalon Belt Drive System. It is not a harmonic mount as stated in an earlier version. We apologize for the error.
