iOptron CEM25P Equatorial Mount w/1.5" Tripod


With the new CEM25P, all of the most popular elements of the CEM25 remain, plus it now provides a guaranteed low periodic error of approximately +/- 10 arc seconds or less. An improved manufacturing process for the R.A. gear is responsible for this improved tracking accuracy. In addition, the CEM25P has larger gear switches on each axis for easier access and modification when wearing light gloves.

This CEM Center Balanced Equatorial Mount is light weight, extremely quiet, and consumes up to 60% less than the typical GOTO power consumption of similar mounts.

The "Z" design mount puts the payload weight at the center of gravity, enabling better natural stability. This mount design is especially light, considering its payload capacity, a welcome advantage when preparing a remote setup. Additional features include an adjustable counterweight bar to avoid interfering with the tripod. And since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft, polar alignment is consistently quick and accessible.

The CEM25P features the most current advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts on the market. The Go2Nova® Hand Controller is user-friendly with a large four line LCD screen that helps streamline the process of setting the telescope and locating one of the 150,000 plus objects included in the Go2Nova® database.
