In the front of the mount, there is a place for the QHY Polemaster (adapter included), which allows you to perform a precise polar alignment, required for your imaging sessions.
Electronic assistant for initial polar alignment
A set of sensors allows you to orient the mount at the correct altitude and azimuth in order to have an initial, rough, polar alignment (for lower focal lengths such as camera lenses or visual observations ). Our mobile application guides you through that process.
Reverse Voltage Polarity Protection
NYX-101 has been designed with reverse voltage polarity protection. A saver if you accidentally reverse voltage or battery polarity during the night.
Optional Counterweight support
Mount does not require counterweights for payload up to 20Kg. However, if you would like to install counterweights for higher payloads there is a compatible M12 threaded shaft hole at the end of the DEC axis.
ASCOM, INDI, Sky Safari Support
The mount fully supports ASCOM6 and INDI framework. Sky-Safari is also supported allowing you to control the mount through your mobile device.
LX200 protocol is fully compatible with NYX-101. Sky-Safari works out of the box with the mount.
A mobile application for IOS and Android platforms allows you to control both axis of the mount, slew to installed catalogs of thousands of night sky targets and do a rough polar alignment through an electronic polar assistant.
Safety limits on RA axis
Safety limit encoders on RA Axis prevent internal cable snag or collision with the tripod.
An easy firmware upgrade process allows you to stay up to date with bug fixes and the latest features of the mount.
