The iOptron® CEM60EC Equatorial Mount
with iPolar - Tripod Sold Separately

This iOptron equatorial mount can handle up to 60 lb. by distributing the weight of the payload at the center of gravity, making the mount extremely light compared to its payload. This is a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. The mount includes an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent obstruction with the tripod or pier and iPolar.

The "EC" version of the iOptron CEM60 offers an RA high resolution encoder with <0.25 arcsecond accuracy, a real plus for astro-imagers

GoTo Technology

The iOptron CEM60 is equipped with the most advanced Go2Nova GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Its database includes over 300,000 objects. The Go2Nova® Hand Controller is intuitive to use and its large 8-line LCD screen simplifies the process of setting telescopes and locating objects. This iOptron equatorial mount is a new category (and payload capacity) for viewing and astrophotography.


The iPolar from iOptron makes accurate polar alignment simple! All you have to do is place the plus symbol over the graphical representation of the celestial pole's location. When these two symbols are aligned, they represent a precise polar alignment.

The iOptron iPolar uses an electronic camera that is aligned with both the axes of your mount. Downloadable Windows software processes the camera's images to calculate the true location of the celestial pole (north or south) and then guides you through any adjustments needed to align your mount precisely to the pole.

iPolar Features :

  • Fast and easy to use
  • 30 arcsec precision
  • No need to see the Pole Star or rotate the mount during alignment
  • Unique imaging enhancement technique
  • Smart plate solving
  • On screen instruction during alignment
