DM6withtopmount2

OVERVIEW:

The DM-6 was designed from the start to use Digital Setting Circles (DSC). Not an after thought. Every aspect of the mount and options are designed and manufactured to keep the mount totally orthogonal (at right angles). The box style of the mount and close proximity of the two axis guarantees the two axes are orthogonal. The way the encoders are mounted directly into the ends of the shafts to insure there is solid contact with the encoders, no gear error or belt stretching. Even the orientation of the shafts keeps the cabling safe in the box and eliminates cable wrap. Everything was designed to make sure the DSC’s are as accurate as they can be.

The Sky Commander is the DSC computer everyone has been copying since 1991. One of the first computer Digital Setting Circle’s on the market. Updated in 2008 to the XP-4 The Sky Commander has 15 popular catalogs including Messier, NGC, IC, and the Planets totaling almost 16000 objects. Your XP-4 is PC updatable as new catalogs or changes are added.

SPECS:
