NEW! The Paramount MX+ , has just been announced by Software Bisque and features new quieter, more powerful brushless, premium DC Servo motors, previously available only in the Paramount ME II, giving the MX+ even better precision tracking performance. These Brushless DC servo motors are also designed so that all moving parts are on bearing surfaces which reduces friction almost to zero. Total weight capacity has been increased to as much as 100 lbs.

The Paramount MX+ has a broad range of exciting features and capabilities that will keep you focused on the stars and not your equipment. Software Bisque urges you to compare the Paramount MX+ feature set with every other commercial mount in this price range before buying any mount.
