iOptron CEM40EC Equatorial Mount Head with iPolar & Hard Case

Representing the next generation of center-balanced equatorial mounts, the iOptron CEM40 offers superb performance as well as an incredibly eye-catching appearance. Supports up to 40 pound payloads despite weighing in at less than 16 pounds!

The iOptron CEM40 Mount incorporates the iPolor electronic polar finder scope to ensure that telescope alignment will be accurate, even when the pole star is concealed. Large levers on the quick-lock drive engagement system make snapping the gears into place easy.

Innovative iOptron Technology

With iOptron's patent-pending Universal Self-Centering Saddle (USCS), the iOptron CEM40EC mount is capable of accepting both Losmandy and Vixen-style dovetail plates. In addition, the CEM40EC also features iOptron's ultra-quiet, low-power consuming stepper motor drive for even better precision tracking.

Computerized Mount Features

For night sky navigation, the iOptron CEM40EC mount uses the Go2Nova® 8407 hand controller. This incredible technology helps observers find celestial objects with the aid of the mount's 212,000+ object database! For those looking for a telescope that has the capability of tracking and finding beautiful night sky objects, this mount is a must have tool.

Please note this package does not include the tripod or 10 lb. counterweight. It does, however, come with a hard case to go along with the integrated iPolar.
