PERFECT IMAGING PERFORMANCE

Testimonials

Testimonial: Seitdem ich mich mit der Astrophotographie beschäftige, habe ich jede Menge an guten und schlechten Erfahrungen mit Montierungen verschiedener Hersteller gesammelt. Als ich dann das erste Mal eine ASA DDM Montierung in Betrieb nahm, hatte ich den Eindruck, eine neue Welt zu betreten – vergleichbar mit dem Erlebnis meiner ersten Aufnahme mit der CCD-Kamera. Gerald Rhemann


Testimonial: Es ist aufregend in einer Ära zu leben, in der so viele bahnbrechende Ergebnisse das Verständinis der Astronomie bereichern. In diesem Zusammenhang liefert die Firma ASA top aktuelle Hi-Tech-Systeme für die (semi)professionelle Astrofotografie. Als klassischer Hobbyastronom kann ich mit Begeisterung die gesamte Produktpalette empfehlen. Die Kombination von schneller Optik, hochpräziser Direktnachführung und optimaler Fernsteuerbarkeit ist wohl weltweit einzigartig. Prim. Dr. Thomas Maca


Testimonial: Nun habe ich diese Montierung seit Mitte Oktober. Wetter und auch Arbeit haben leider ausführliche Tests mit der DDM 85 unter dem Sternenhimmel verhindert. Doch ich nutzte jede Menge an Zeit um mich zu Hause mit der Montierung vertraut zu machen. Letztes Wochenende war das Wetter endlich gut und ich konnte diese Zeit mit einem „First Light“  nutzen. Nachdem ich mein erstes Objekt (NGC 281) angefahren hatte, machte ich ein Pointing File mit sieben Sternen in der Umgebung dieses Objekts. Dieses Pointing File sollte die reproduzierbaren Fehler der Ausrüstung (Poljustierung, Durchbiegung etc.) berücksichtigen und ausgleichen. Danach machte ich eine zehnminütige Aufnahme mit Ha-Filter ohne Guiding: Crop, 100%: http://www.pbase.com/gbachmayer/image/131952982/original.jpg. Auf den Punkt gebracht. Ich bin einfach beeindruckt von der Genauigkeit der Nachführung. Gerhard Bachmayer


Testimonial: Es freut mich einer der ersten Besitzer einer ASA DDM85 Montierung zu sein. Die innovative Technologie in Verbindung mit dem bekannten ASA N12 Astrographen  haben mir den Einstieg in die Deep-Sky-Photographie erleichtert. ASA hat sich die Anerkennung verdient, diese professionelle Technologien für Amateure erschwinglich zu machen. Emil Ivanov

Tim Carruthers - Jewel Box Observatory Cairns, Australia
ASA 20" Keller-Cassegrain Astrograph + ASA DDM85 PREMIUM Mount
I have just returned from a trip to the remote site. I am very very impressed with the DDM85 Premium mount. It is going to be an awesome investment, I am sure.
The mount and the 20" telescope are housed inside the 3.5m dome. The pier and mount are rock solid and the workmanship and finish are excellent. The mount is very accurate in pointing and tracking. I have the mount polar aligned to reasonable accuracy at this stage. This was easily accomplished on my own, even with such a heavy payload as the pier azimuth and altitude adjustments are well thought out and work very well.
There are many super features with the DDM, AutoSlew, and Sequence combination.
