German Equatorial Mount. A common equatorial mount for small and medium sized amateur telescopes, suited to both long and short telescope tubes. The telescope tube is connected to the counter-weighted declination axis, which rotates in a housing that keeps it orthogonal to the polar axis. Tracking an object across the meridian requires that the telescope be moved from one side of the mount to the other, which in turn requires that both axes are rotated through 180º, thus reversing the orientation of the image. This is not a problem for visual observation, but is a limitation for astrophotography.
German Equatorial Mount. A common type of equatorial mount. As opposed to an English equatorial mount, here the OTA is offset from the centre of the mount and is balanced by means of counterweights on the other side and an interconnecting shaft. The shaft rotates at 90 degrees to the mount’s polar axis (i.e. the shaft points constantly at 0 degrees declination but can move through all hours of right ascension), and the OTA can rotate about the shaft’s axis so as to point at any angle of declination..
German Equatorial Mount -- A telescope mount that can easily counteract the Earth's rotation and track the stars.
