Another Harmonic Mount on the way


Recommended Posts

Yet another harmonic mount on the way from Pegasus Astro



It incorporates high precision strain wave (harmonic) gears. The mount weighs just 6.2Kg and is capable of driving 20+ Kg of equipment.


Looking interesting from many manufacturers now.

Can't wait for some real world user reviews on these mounts ... I've sold a load of my gear to fund one as my back can't handle the heq5 and C8 any more !

Leaning towards the Ioptron HEM27 but really need to see some reviews.

The Nyx looks to be a Gem45 competitor (20kg class) while the HEM27 is more like a Gem28. In the latter case another £600 or so to gain 0.8kg. Real world performance will be the decider for me. But interesting developments across the board.

First light optics have had 7 of the HEM 27 with Ipolar in stock for a while now ... no sales yet ...

I suspect It's because nobody want's or needs the Ipolar but Ioptron are trying to force sell them by releasing the kit first 😞
