iOptron CEM40 Center Balance Equatorial Mount Head with iPolar, 1.75" Tripod, and Hard Case

The iOptron CEM40 mount is superb when it comes to aesthetics and function! Even though the mount weighs only 15.8 pounds, it can support a payload of up to 40 pounds! It also includes the iPolar Electronic Polarscope, a 1.75" tripod, and a hard case to complete the system!

The CEM40 mount uses iOptron's Universal Self-Centering Saddle (USCS). This saddle accommodates Losmandy and Vixen-style dovetail plates and also uses iOptron's ultra-quiet, low-power consumption stepper motor drive system, aiding the mount in providing precise tracking.

Using the GoTo hand controller to navigate, this mount will help any observer adventure through the sky. This incredible technology locates celestial objects with the aid of the 359,000+ 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.
