German Equatorial Mounts or GEMs are a type of equatorial telescope mount.

GEM consists of bars connected in a T-shape, where the lower bar is the right ascension axis, and the upper bar is the declination axis. The telescope is mounted to upper end of the declination axis, and appropriate counterweighs on its other end.
