AYO mount series

Experience the absolute lightness of stargazing - enjoy the ultimate "grab-and-go" AYO mount. Forget all the distractions of having to manage a mount while observing. The simplicity of the AYO mount allows you to literally focus on the sky.

Enjoy your fine refractor like a big dob - easily portable to where the sky is dark

How many times do you consider popping outside for a quick view of the sky, but decide not to because your mount is too much of a hassle? Your equatorial, geared, mount just takes too long to even just point. The AYO series mounts still support the high load capacity and smooth motions of those "premium" complicated mounts, but their lightness and the alt-az design allows you to move the scope outside and start observing instantly. A ten minute observing session might take only eleven minutes. Imagine how much more observing at home you might do with that little overhead!

Is your home under a bright sky? Do you like a computerized mount? The AYO series mounts support an internal encoders option. In addition to protecting the ecoders from damage and weather, mounting them internally is a beautifully elegant solution. Add a handheld sky computer or WiFi repeater and you have a self-contained computer assisted observing system that still only requires one trip outside to start observing.

nothing is handling so easy like an AYO

How often do you take your premium refractor and complicated mount to a dark site? Again, is it too much hassle? Imagine what you could see and how often you would go if the prep consisted of dismounting the scope and taking with the mount immediately to the car with no time-consuming breakdown. Add a trip to the car for your eyepieces and you're on the road..

All our products are finished with an 18 μ anodized layer. Asian producers typically anodize to only 2 - 3 μ, which is significant less resistant against mechanical abrasion to save expenses. Due to this extraordinary thickness, the color-tone can vary slightly from unit to unit, but it provides extraordinary protection and is a key to the unmatched smoothness of the axis motions.
