iOptron AZ Mount Pro Head

iOptron uses the term "level and go" to define their new AZ Mount Pro's smooth set up routing. Using its integrated precision level indicator, the user merely has to level the mount and turn the power on. This proficient computerized mount will handle everything from there. The iOptron AZ Mount Pro calculates its position as well as telescope orientation by engaging the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and incorporated position and angular detection sensors. The mount will then automatically slew the device to an easily detectable bright night sky object. The only thing the operator needs to do is confirm that the object is centered in order to trigger tracking and GoTo capabilities.
