The concept of this universal telescope mount is based on two major parts.

1. Physically it consists of an intrinsically balanced alt-alt-az mount that enables for full sky reach and with the dimensions that enable equatorial tracking.

2. The second part is the motion control part. A universal telescope mount must be equipped with motors, encoders, electronics and software that provide the possibility to perform the equatorial tracking and - if you wish - tracking of objects that don't follow the ecliptic.
