Takahashi 90S?

Postby ariefm71 » Thu Jan 05, 2006 12:58 am

Anyone knows about this mount? is it the same as EM-100? what is the loading rate and how good is the tracking accuracy?

thanks,
Arief

Hi arief,
90S was common in Taiwan and Japan in the 1980s. Yes it is like the EM100 but handling capacity is slightly lower and above that of the Spaceboy. Good mount.

thanks Remus! is the handling capacity higher than P2Z or EM10? does it work in our latitude without modification?

cheers,
arief

Found the handling capacity, it's 25lbs (as with all Tak mounts, this is imaging capacity, not visual). The mount looks very similar to P2Z, so my guess is it should work in 0 deg lat.

Update: The 90s doesn't work in 0 latitude, the EM-100 does
