Fornax Mounts

Fornax Mounts

Fornax 2002 Ltd is the manufacturer of the Fornax Mounts branded products that covers a wide range of load capacities, from one of the most precise mobile tracking mounts in the world, the Fornax 10 Mark II, through the medium-heavy duty Fornax 52, that we also use in our own observatory at 365astronomy, to the really heavy-duty Fornax 100 and Fornax 150/100. There are also some real gems of telescope manufacturing as they now added a Fornax 200 mount to the list, one of these were installed in Chile. You can read about the installation of this enormous mount in our blog where we shared some images of a Fornax 200 installation: Fornax Mounts in Chile – Fornax 200 Installation



Fornax also manufactures custom made instruments that have been in service on various scientific projects all around the world. These are the BlackGEM project that is a wide-field telescope array dedicated to measure the optical emission from pairs of merging neutron stars and black holes, the HATNET project that is an exoplanet survey of  geographically distributed network of 7 small telescopes optimized for detecting transiting exoplanets, the HATSOUTH that is another exoplanet survey with a network of 6 astrograph telescope systems designed to detect transiting exoplanets in orbit around relatively bright stars visible from the Southern hemisphere, and the most curious project is the HAT PI that is 63 carefully aligned lens-and-camera sub-units attached to one huge tracking mount that will enable the detection of a diverse array of objects ranging from near-earth asteroids and exoplanets around bright stars to novae and bright gamma-ray bursts.
