Sayonara T-REX...

With the sad passing back in October 2016 of Akita-san, Yuhan`s creator and builder of each and every hand made T-REX mount (and accessory), we now close a chapter on the production and sale of this very fine Japanese mounting. At this time, we are unable to accept any new orders for the mount, though a few remaining parts and accessories are available in very limited quantities. Please see here for a complete list of various accessories, and the bottom part of the price list below, for details,

Best wishes to all of our T-REX customers worldwide, who are now owners of an heirloom piece of astronomy equipment.

...Barry Gooley, Akihito Matsumoto and our friends at Yuhan

T-REX Altazimuth Mounts
From left to right: The basic model "T-MOUNT" alt-azimuth mount, predecessor of the T-REX, on a Vixen SX-HAL-130 tripod, a black finished T-REX alt azimuth mount on a GMT-128 (Synta) stainless steel tripod, with a DSC holder tray on the side, and a white finished T-REX mount, also on a GMT-128 tripod, with our own "Super Navigator" digital setting circle (DSC) readout module resting on its tray. The T-REX is available for attachment to either the SX-HAL-130 or the GMT-128 tripod (please specify at time of order
 
Standard Accessories: Oversized large handled special new style lock bolts for the T-REX saddle plate securely lock down the telescope`s dovetail plate.
 
The T-REX is a brand new alt-azimuth mount that is fully compatible with digital setting circles such as our own (optional) Super Navigator readout module. 4096 step encoders (angle position sensors) safely mounted internally on each axis are standard equipment. Dual slow motion controls with oversize easy grip handles, and clamps that can lightly clutch or tightly lock down each axis, are also standard.
 
Easily installed and easily removed, 55cm long flexible extension cables allow slow motion control of the T-REX at a distance closer to the eyepiece of longer telescopes.
