iOptron CEM25P Equatorial Mount w/1.5" Tripod & Hard Case

The new CEM25P Equatorial Mount keeps all of the CEM25's features, but now has a guaranteed low periodic error of approximately +/- 10 arc seconds or lower. Stricter production procedures allow for enhanced tracking accuracy. The CEM25P also has larger gear switches on both axes for easier access and adjustment when donning light gloves.

This whisper quiet Center-balanced Equatorial Mount (CEM) weighs less than 11 lbs., and consumes up to 60% less GOTO power than other mounts of its kind.

With its "Z" design, the CEM25P mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity. This provides improved natural stability. Considering its payload capacity, this makes "Z" designed mounts exceptionally light, a nice advantage when setting up at a remote location. The CEM25P EQ mount is also equipped with an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent interference with the tripod. Plus polar alignment is consistently quick and user-friendly as the polar scope is not obstructed by the declination shaft.

The CEM25P contains the latest advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, achieving status as one of the most powerful and precise GOTO mounts on the market. An easy to use Go2Nova® Hand Controller is equipped with a database of over 150,000 objects. With a large four line LCD screen, this controller simplifies the telescope setting and object locating procedure.
