Smart and good looking connection of ZWO ASiair, EAF and guide or finder scope to your William Optics RedCat 51 and SpaceCat 51 telescopes.
Black-CAT mount integrates the components seamlessly to your telescope making it work and feel like one piece of precise optics, electronics and mechanics to help you achieve your goal - pinpoint sharp astro pics!
Black-CAT Mount connects ZWO ASiair, EAF and guide or finder scope to the William Optics RedCat 51 and SpaceCat 51 telescopes. The mount includes precise gears that allows the EAF to control the focus of the telescope.

Black-CAT allows you to install all components as near as possible to to the telescope which makes the balancing of your astrophotography setup easier. Backlash of the Black-CAT Mount gears is minuscule compared to the backlash of the EAF gear box .

The ASA plastic withstands heat up to 80° Celsius (176° Fahrenheit) and UV-light without bending or deforming.
