ΣΤΗΡΙΞΗ Paramount ME Series 6 (On-axis absolute encoders)
The best just got better

The Paramount ME Series 6 represents the latest in gear-driven GEM performance.

  • All new MKS 6000 provides built-in Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB C communication options and more.
  • Optional Power On and Observe™ absolute encoder technology. No homing, no periodic error.
  • High-amperage XT60 connectors can supply continuous 12V DC power up to 60A.
  • Improved Versa-Plate dovetail features drop-in telescope installation.
  • Carrying capacity up to 240 lb. (109 kg) of instrumentation, 480 lb. (218 kg) with counterweights.
  • Streamlined Instrument Panel provides pass through Ethernet connection and four XT60 power ports.
  • Red components are powder coated aluminum for fade-resistant durability, black components anodized aluminum.

The Paramount ME delivers superior performance made possible through its artful integration of precision mechanics, advanced control system electronics, and the uniquely capable TheSky Universal Bundle (included).

Skillfully carrying up to 240 lb./109 kg total instrument capacity of telescopes, cameras, and accessories (480 lb./218 kg total capacity), the Paramount ME can help you create your next photographic masterpiece or help make your next discovery in your permanent observatory.

What is the difference between motor-based incremental encoders and on-axis absolute encoders?

On-axis Absolute Encoders vs. Motor-based Encoders.

Paramount's equipped with on-axis absolute encoders know where they are at all times.  Paramount's with incremental encoders (or motor-based encoders) know only how far they have moved since they were initialized using a nightly process called homing.

The crucial additional difference is that the on-axis absolute encoders are fitted directly to the mount axes themselves, bypassing the worm drives.  Paramount's with incremental encoders are fitted to the worms instead, which means that with incremental encoders alone, periodic errors in the worm drive show up in the tracking.  These mounts must be calibrated and corrected using a process called periodic error correction (PEC), which measures and records the repeatable gear train errors and removes them.  (TheSky features advanced, multi-harmonic PE detection and PEC calibration that minimizes periodic error in mounts with incremental encoders.)

For mounts with incremental encoders, homing re-zeros the encoders when precise sensors on each of the axes are reached. From then on, the incremental encoders are in effect delivering absolute readings.

However, the crucial additional difference remains, namely that the incremental encoder system is behind the worm drive, and periodic error correction is still required to get the best out of the RA tracking.

High-resolution on-axis absolute encoder technology is significantly more expensive than incremental encoders.
