Meet the world’s most portable high performance telescope mount.

Our goal with AstroTrac 360 was to do the impossible: engineer a full‑size experience into the smallest, lightest telescope mount possible. And not only is it compact - it’s more accurate than ever. The new AstroTrac 360’s advanced friction drives and optical encoders deliver even better unguided tracking performance than the AstroTrac TT320X-AG.

Don't weight. Go 360.

German Equatorial Mount

AstroTrac 360 punches above its weight of just 5 kg (11 lb) in GEM configuration. With an imaging instrument capacity of 10 kg (22 lb) it easily handles a 100 mm (4 inch) refractor or 200 mm (8 inch) carbon Ritchey Chretien with camera.

Single Arm Mount

If you’re shooting with a 400 mm camera lens or small telescope, leave the counterweights at home. A unique sliding mechanism enables balance without counterweights.

Camera Tracker

Split the AstroTrac 360 German Equatorial or Single Arm mount and you have two of the best tracking camera mounts on the planet. Double your results or double your fun with friends and family. Climbing Everest? - just take the one.

Instrument Mounting

The 360 Omni-Clamp answers all your AstroTrac 360 mounting questions. Clamp a scope or telephoto lens to the 360 drive in German Equatorial or Single Arm configurations with a Vixen dovetail. Attach one or more ballheads to the Tracker with back-to-back Omni-Clamps. The 360 Omni-Clamp permits quick release from the TW3100 Wedge.

Tracking and pointing

Ultimate accuracy.

Advanced Friction Drive

(patent pending)

Ultimate precision. Super smooth. Zero backlash. More efficient than worm gears so less power required.

Tracking Performance

Built in premium Renishaw optical encoders guarantee high precision tracking all night long. Long unguided exposures at 400 mm focal length or more are now a reality with typical unguided tracking error of  5 arcseconds peak-to-peak over 15 minutes. Enjoy big mount performance at longer focal lengths  with the ST-4 autoguide port.

Pointing

Raw encoder accuracy better than 60 arcseconds over 360 degrees ensures your camera will be centred on your target.

Polar alignment

All new design.

Secure Polar Scope

The entirely re-engineered all metal polar scope snaps firmly into the AstroTrac 360.

Reticle Illumination

Dimmable built in LEDs illuminate the new AstroTrac 360 polar scope reticle, so there’s no need for cables or additional batteries.

Collimation

Swing the right ascension drive through 180 degrees and use the polar scope adjusters to ensure the polar scope is perfectly collimated for precise polar alignment.

Wireless connectivity

Wi-Fi control from your phone, tablet or laptop.

Web browser control

Forget quirky handpads and software installation. Control your AstroTrac 360 from your familiar browser environment out of the box.

Software compatibility

Future software updates will include GOTO and support for popular 3rd party software such as SkySafari and TheSkyX.

The new AstroTrac 360 was optimised for best travel performance with feedback from the astrophotography group project nightflight, Helen, JT, Professor David Auckland, Michael Butler, Millie and Eva.
