Virtuoso™ mount provides stable platform and will track night sky objects automatically once located.
Telescope can be slewed automatically in both axes, at five different speeds, via mount’s electronic keypad.
Great feature of Virtuoso™ is patented Freedom-Find™ dual-encoder technology which also allows telescope to be moved manually in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information, giving user enormous convenience and flexibility during observing sessions.
