NPS_L200Spectrograph_300pxJim's Mobile Incorporated now offers encoders and hardware to mate its popular NGC-MAX positioning computer to the Explore Scientific Twilight II alt-az telescope mount (a complete kit with NGC-MAX computer sells for $729). Now you can have all the Messier, NGC, and IC catalog objects available at the push of a button for your dual-mounted telescopes. The kit's high-resolution encoders deliver 10,000-tics-per-revolution accuracy, virtually guaranteeing that your target lands in the field of your telescope every time. The kit comes complete with all mounting hardware and tools needed for installation and it works with the Twilight II, with or without the optional 8-inch extension pier. The mounting bracket, encoders, and NGC-MAX computer are each available separately.
