TThe DDM160 was designed as an equatorial pier mount: since measurements are client specific, the equatorial pier can be aligned exactly according to its installation site.

Aside its impressive loading capacity (instrument weight) of up to 300 kg (660 lbs), its guiding accuracy is next to none and can easily be compared to large, meter class modern telescope systems.

Like on all of ASA's mounts, the "Autoslew" software provides perfect services. ASA's DDM160 mount is delivered with a complete software package and options such as autopointing, precision tracking and internet remote control.
