The Equatorial Mount is used to maintain the orientation of the Direct Irradiance Attachment (sold separately) and the Full Sky Irradiance RCR (sold separately) relative to the sun.
Once the mount is manually aligned with the Earth's rotational axis and proper solar alignment is obtained using the directional keypad, this mount scans in synchronization with the motion of the sun through the sky.
The mount is powered by a rechargeable 12 volt gel cell battery pack included with the mount. The heavy duty tripod on which the mount is installed is also included. The FieldSpec® spectrometer is mounted on a tripod (available separately). The tripod tray is not a standard item.
For use with all FieldSpec® and HandHeld models.
