Inside the model observatory, I also made a moving model of the telescope and mount to ensure it wouldn't hit the roof and walls as it went through the complex gyrations of slewing a long refractor on a German equatorial mount.
True to form, he chose to build a German equatorial mount using basic pipe fittings.
The top of the tube was set at a height which would result in a height over the observatory floor of 80cm--I had to extend this by another 30cm when I moved from a fork to a German equatorial mount.
This German equatorial mount has a shaft, called the polar axis, that you align parallel to Earth's axis of rotation.
The equipment includes a computer-driven 14-inch Celestron telescope on a German equatorial mount.
This multi-purpose mount is equally useful as a German equatorial mount or operating in alt-azimuth mode.
My 30cm LX200 optical tube does not have a dovetail bar so the options for attaching it to a commercial German equatorial mount boiled down to three: screw a plate between mirror cell and corrector cell onto which a dovetail bar could be mounted; make a cradle to wrap around the tube and attach that to a dovetail; or, possibly, buy a commercial system like a Homeyer (4) or Parallax Instruments (5) cradle.
The German equatorial mount was manufactured by Software Bisque, located in Golden, Colorado, USA.
A popular low-tech method is to use a German equatorial mount, a T-shaped mount that has one axis of rotation aimed toward the celestial pole (near the North Star in the Northern Hemisphere).
As its name implies, this portable mount can be used as either an alt-azimuth, for visual-only use, or as a German equatorial mount suitable for long-exposure imaging.
Back home where portability is less of an issue, you can add to the pleasure of owning this telescope by placing it on a more robust altazimuth or a small German equatorial mount with manual or electric slow-motion controls.
