Mounting Kit for ZWO ASIAIR

Mounting Kit for ZWO ASIAIRThe mounting plate is placed on the top of the tube rings. The plate has a field of M4 holes in 20mm raster which allow mounting of other components such as a temperature sensor or laser pointer. The mounting plate also includes multiple eyelets for attaching cables and a hook-and-pile fastener. Two clamps for the mounting of a guide scope on the plate are included. Other accessories can be ordered as well upon request.

As Photoastro’s Vladimir Minenko notes, “The kit integrates a ZWO ASIAIR Pro or Plus or Mini and adds a belt drive for the ZWO EAF to the focuser on the Sky-Watcher Esprit 100ED. The set is based on the experience made with similar mounting kits for rigs based on DSLR lenses and small refractors. The integrated belt drive for the ZWO EAF is much more compact than other adapters for the ZWO EAF. It does not require any modifications on the focuser, which might cause problems with the warranty. The drive supports free-wheeling, which allows regular use of the focuser even if the EAF is attached.”
