Active Counterweight and Damping System

 

Our new Active Counterweight and Damping System allows you to change to ANY eyepiece, binoviewer or camera without worrying about the difference in weight.  The microprocessor controlled system is completely passive to the user, just turn it on and go.  Nothing to select or calibrate, ever.  Works great with or without the ServoCat,  of course.

As an added bonus, the first software upgrade (all upgrades are free) will include our revolutionary Active Damping System.  This enhancement takes our already incredible damping time down to 82ms at 12hz!  (The best competitor's truss scope we tested rang in at 1351ms, the worst (an all metal scope) was 5112ms)    Light wind and traffic rumble are also countered by the system.  For the first time in history, professional damping times are available on a portable scope.

All of this will soon be available as an option on any Webster Telescope.  The ACDS can also be retrofitted to any existing non-metallic mirror box, and will be available for end user installation.  A person handy with tools should be able to complete the installation in about 2 hours. A laptop with a USB 1.1 (or higher) port will be required to perform any firmware upgrades.  We will update those who do not have access to a laptop for the cost of return shipping.
