AM3 Mount

The ZWO AM3 is a new compact strain wave-geared equatorial/alt-az mount for on the go visual observing and astrophotography.

Incredibly lightweight at only 3.9kg, the AM3 has an impressive payload of 8kg without counterweight or 13kg with counterweight. Despite its size, the AM3 is precisely engineered to be stable and sturdy enough for deep sky imaging with small to medium-sized telescopes. With a latitude range of 0-90, the mount can be used easily near the equator.
