More robust in every way, the Paramount ME II has a remarkable weight capacity of 240 pounds while weighing in at a moderate and manageable 84 pounds. Increased bearing size, a larger counterweight shaft diameter and, of course, a far greater weight capacity make the ME II a more heavy duty follow up to the legendary Paramount ME.

As expected with every Software Bisque mount, the ME II is strong and smart. Borrowing from the MX mount design, you can now run you equipment cables through the mount - with no disassembly required. The instrument panel also includes 2 USB ports so you're sure to be able to connect your guiding accessories with ease.

Always striving for perfection, the Paramount MEII's belt driven motors are nearly backlash-free. A maximum of 7 arc seconds of periodic error, before correction, provides remarkable slewing accuracy and clutchless gears maintain T-Point's pointing accuracy.
