Whats included:

  1. AM5 mount head
  2. Hand controller and cable

Important Note:
There is an ASIAIR finder shoe attached on to the side of the AM5 which is meant for attaching a polar finder scope. This finder shoe is not suitable for mounting an ASIAIR as both the cables and the antenna of the ASIAIR can be crushed during movement.

If you want to attach this finder shoe to a different location on the mount which is more suitable, such as on the side of the Losmandy / Vixen dovetail saddle plate, then make sure not to over tighten the Hex screws fully into the side panel or you will damage the insert threads. Keep the length of the inner threads between 3-5 mm. Alternatively, you can use M4x3.5mm or M4x4mm screws instead, which are available from ZWO, but also from any hardware store.
