Introducing the iOptron SmartStar™ 80 mm Refractor Entry Level telescope system. This fine scope is on a SmartStar-G GPS "The Cube" AltAzimuth Telescope Mount in Astro Blue color.
80 mm Refractor Entry-Level Telescope:
Designed with the latest technology the 80 mm lens is crafted with a fluorite based, low dispersion glass that is ground and polished to exact specifications. The precision design is excellent for viewing bright stars, planets and their moons, as well as for bird watching and other land objects. Two eye pieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single centered object.
The Cube™ - AltAzimuth Mount:
The SmartStar™ refractor telescope comes with iOptron's patented Alt-Azimuth Mount, "The Cube"™. This compact mount design is one of the most functional and flexible units on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dovetail connection. Just select the object you want to see and the mount moves the scope to the object for you! OTA's with dovetail connection & a weight of less than 11 lb (including finder scope & camera) are compatible with the SmartStar-G GPS AltAzimuth mount.
iOptron 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, and planets, you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Includes 32-channel GPS module. The SmartStar®-G built-in 32-channel GPS module automatically calculates your latitude, longitude, and date/time. This is especially handy for those who like to take their scope on the road. Just turn on the unit and the GPS automatically connects with a satellite.
SmartStar-G GPS Astro Blue "The Cube" Altazimuth Mount:
The Cube™ compact mount design is probably the most functional, flexible, and portable unit available! Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with telescopes which use a dovetail connection. With this mount, there are no "dead spots" so you can point your telescope anywhere above the horizon. Other conventional mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also comes standard with an AC power connection. An optional DC adaptor is available so you can use your car battery, if you’re camping or at any remote location. This mount is in Astro Blue color, as shown in the photo.
