AZ Mount Pro with LiteRoc Tripod

$2,395.00

An easy to set up, Goto mount. "Level and go".

We call it "level and go", the term used to describe iOptron new AZ Mount Pro's simple set up routing. Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth telescope mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors; the AZ mount Pro calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation. Automatically the mount slews the instrument to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.

The new LiteRoc tripod resulting in a lighter tripod with stability similar to the old 2” one. It also has improved leg cuffs and sockets for further rigidity and redesigned leg lock levers securing the extensions position.
