About this product

The Orion Atlas EQ-G Equatorial Mount has been a standard in affordable, astrophotography-capable, GoTo mounts for nearly a decade. Now Orion is proud to announce the enhanced, more versatile Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G GoTo Mount. Certain to become a favorite among intermediate to experienced observers and astrophotographers, this three-in-one smart mount not only operates in equatorial GoTo mode holding one telescope, but also in Altazimuth GoTo & Tracking mode while holding one or even two different telescopes. Control the Atlas Pro via the included illuminated hand controller, or robotically with your PC/laptop, or even wirelessly from your iOS mobile device with optional Orion StarSeek software and Wi-Fi module (sold separately).

In addition to the dual Altaz and EQ modes, the Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G boasts some other key enhancements, including a smooth yet very robust latitude adjustment for accurate polar alignment, beefier Right Ascension (RA) and Declination (Dec) clutch adjustments, a thicker retractable counterweight shaft - 1" in diameter - and a thread-on shaft extension. The newly engineered equatorial head is a few pounds lighter than the Atlas EQ-G, but will carry a 44-pound telescope payload with ease. In Altazimuth GoTo & Tracking mode with two different telescopes, each side can hold up to a 44-pound telescope. The mount comes standard with an upgraded belt-driven stepper motor drive system that can locate over 42,000 celestial objects of interest with pointing accuracy of 5 arc-minutes and tracking precision of 0.1436 arc-second steps. The drive has closed-loop electronics, with two sets of encoders per axis, meaning that once it is aligned you can manually move the attached telescope to a new target and the mount will still know where it's pointing in the sky! What's more, after manual re-pointing of the attached telescope, this smart mount can return to its last target or pinpoint any new target you select without requiring realignment.

This is a highly transportable, yet seriously heavy-duty mount; the mount and tripod weigh in at 51 lbs. (without counterweights) and the mount can be uncoupled from the tripod with a single hand knob. Loaded with great features, the Atlas Pro AZ/EQ-G GoTo Mount has a secure, threaded power input jack; a built-in autoguider port for accurate astrophotographic use; and offers 9 different slew speeds (up to 4.2ø per second). This performance-packed mount also features Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC). The Atlas Pro's dual-width dovetail saddle accommodates both narrow (Vixen-style) and wide (Losmandy-style) dovetail attachment plates. Along with its sturdy steel-legged tripod, the mount also includes a second dovetail saddle for dual-telescope Altazimuth operations, illuminated polar axis scope with adjustable brightness, two 11-lb. counterweights, RS-232 communication cable, and 12-volt DC power cable with a secure threaded connector. This computerized GoTo mount requires a 12V DC power supply such as an Orion Dynamo (sold separately), or an AC-to-DC adapter with 4A or higher current output. An optional 5-amp AC-to-DC converter is also available (sold separately).

Whether you're seeking a reliable mount for astrophotography or just looking for an amazingly accurate GoTo platform for visual pursuits, let Orion's Atlas Pro shoulder the weighty responsibility for smooth, stable, and smart performance!
