Every Paramount MYT component is custom machined from 6061 aluminum at Software Bisque's production facility.

The precision worms are machined from brass. Brass worms and aluminum gears that have a maximum seven (7) arcsecond peak-to-peak periodic error before periodic error correction. When periodic error correction is applied, the resulting peak-to-peak periodic error should be approximately one (1) arcsecond or less.

Both the right ascension and declination axes have a simple two position mechanical "switch" to engage the worm during normal operation, disengage the worm from the gear when balancing the payload.

A separate knob locks and unlocks each axis for transport. GEM design allows the right ascension axis to track past the meridian for up to 2 hours (time). All internal harnesses (cables) and motors are encapsulated inside the body of the mount.

Through the mount access holes allow you to add your own internal cables.

Calibrated polar alignment adjustments.

Paramount homing, tracking and pointing performance.

4.33-inch contact ball bearings in both right ascension and declination.
