iOptron SmartStar A MC90 GoTo GPS MC Telescope - EQ Wedge Mount

Optics

The iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope system is an excellent deep sky viewing and imaging instrument. This 90 mm aperture, 1200 mm focal length telescope drastically lessens the chromatic aberration that tends to afflict its refractor equivalent. Lightweight and ultra compact, this telescope combines power and portability to lift your stargazing experience to the next level.

Dual Mount: Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial - The Cube™

Also known as The Cube™, iOptron's patented Dual Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial Mount is included with the SmartStar® Cube™-A-MC90. With such a compact design, this mount may very well be the most flexible and have the highest functionality of any mount currently available. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit that offers universal compatibility with all telescopes via a dovetail connection. Locks into position for use as a German Equatorial mount, and levels for use as an Alt-Azimuth mount. Furthermore, "dead spots" are eliminated, allowing you to aim your telescope ANYWHERE above the horizon unlike other mounts which block the optical tube at certain points of rotation. The Cube™ comes standard with an AC connection, while an optional DC adapter is separately available for those who wish to plug their telescope motor into their car when viewing from a remote location.

GoToNova® Computerized Control System

The revolutionary GoToNova® computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of 130,000 celestial objects, including all of the most famous galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, not to mention the planets, you’ll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button.

Easy to Understand Controller

Compared to similar hand controllers, the GoToNova® Controller is much more intuitive with better organized menu categories. With 8 lines of content, the GoToNova® features the largest LCD screen on the market whereas most other controllers only have 2 lines. This user-friendly hand controller makes the process of setting up your telescope and selecting where in the night sky you want to explore a breeze.

More Precise Speed Control for Viewing Objects

The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at 9 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope’s viewfinder for as long as you wish.

32-Channel GPS Module

All iOptron A-series telescopes come standard with a 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the GoToNova® Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the GoToNova® computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.

USB Port

A USB port is included with the GoToNova® hand controller in order to greatly expand the performance of an already powerful system. With the USB2COM driver installed, the USB port works as an RS232 serial port. It supports firmware upgrades and computer control.

Tripod

Consisting of 1.25" diameter legs made of heavy-duty stainless steel, the Cube™ Tripod is sturdy yet elegant, providing the user with unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. This all-metal support system will keep your valuable telescope still even on windy nights.
