This German Equatorial mount combines the solid stability of the GM2000
HPS II Monolith with the portability of the GM2000 HPS II Ultraport and
will replace both.
This mount is basically a GM2000 HPS II Ultraport (“splittable” in two
parts) with an additional locking system; next to the quick locking
system, which is very useful to carry and assemble the mount in the
field, we added a further locking system for customers who have the
mount permanently installed in an observatory. This will ensure a great
long-term stability, comparable to a GM2000 HPS II Monolith.
You can easily revert the mount into a portable (“splittable”) version
simply by removing the locking screws.

This way the new GM2000 HPS II Combi combines both advantages of the
previous models in one single mount!
The technical specifications, sizes and weight of the new GM2000 HPS II
Combi are exactly the same as of the
GM2000 HPS II Ultraport.
