iOptron CEM25P Equatorial Mount w/2" Tripod & Hard Case

All of the CEM25's most favored elements are preserved in the new CEM25P Equatorial Mount. On top of this, it now has a guaranteed low periodic error of roughly +/- 10 arc seconds or less. An improved production process for the R.A. gear enables this enhanced tracking accuracy. In addition, larger gear switches on each axis helps those donning light gloves by providing quick access and making adjustments easier.

This whisper quiet Center Balanced Equatorial Mount (CEM) weighs under 11 lbs., and consumes GOTO power at a rate 60% lower than what a typical mount of its kind consumes.

With its "Z" design, the CEM25P mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity for greater natural stability. Taking its payload capacity into consideration, the CEM25P is surprisingly light, a nice benefit when arranging a remote set up. An adjustable counterweight bar is also included to prevent obstructing the tripod. And polar alignment is reliably quick and accessible because the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.

The CEM25P is equipped with the most up-to-date advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most highly accurate and powerful GOTO mounts available. The Go2Nova® Hand Controller has a database of over 150,000 objects along with a large four line LCD screen that makes setting the telescope and locating the target object a user-friendly procedure.
