iOptron Urban 150 Maksutov-Cassegrain on AZ Mount Pro

iOptron's Urban MC150 package allows you to explore the skies with impressive optics and easy set up even in light polluted areas. The 150mm Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA is mounted on the GPS-enhanced AZ Mount Pro, which allows you to attach a secondary telescope (up to 10lbs) for even more versatility. Also included is a heavy-duty 2" stainless steel tripod, 25mm Plossl eyepiece, mirror diagonal, Go2Nova Hand Controller, and much more.

The iOptron Urban 150 features a Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design with a 150mm aperture and f/12 focal ratio. The high focal ratio means that you will notice a dark, black background sky with enhanced contrast. You will love the pinpoint, bright stars and enhanced detail using the included mirror diagonal and 25mm Plossl eyepiece (also included). This MC150 has an internal dual-speed focuser and Aluminized and quartz-overcoated primary and secondary mirrors. This catadioptric, closed-tube design also means less fussing with collimation.

The AZ Mount Pro has the same reliable GOTO and tracking functions as found in its more cumbersome German equatorial counterpart. The AZ Mount Pro, however, is a fraction of the size and weight. On top of the size advantage, this alt-az mount does not require polar alignment and can be set up to track and GOTO without a view of the celestial pole (i.e. a tall building in the way).

The AZ Mount Pro is powered by an onboard rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 10 hours of use. The Go2Nova hand controller has a 212,000+ object library and 8 line illuminated LCD screen to show you galaxies, planets, nebulae, star clusters, and so much more. The AZ Mount Pro has a built-in wifi adapter for complete ASCOM, iOptron Commander, and Sky Safari wireless control.
