iOptron CEM25P Equatorial Mount w/2" Tripod


All of the most popular features of the CEM25 are retained with the new CEM25P, but with the added bonus of a guaranteed low periodic error of nearly +/- 10 arc seconds or lower. A stricter production process for the R.A. gear enables this improved tracking precision. Furthermore, the CEM25P has bigger gear switches on both axes, providing easier access and adjustment, a helpful convenience for those wearing light gloves.

This smooth, exceptionally quiet CEM (Center Balanced Equatorial) Mount weighs under 11 lbs., and uses GOTO power at 60% less than other mounts in its category.

The "Z" design places the payload burden at the center of gravity for enhanced natural stability. Taking its load capacity into consideration, the "Z" designed CEM25P is especially light, a welcome benefit for remote set up. The CEM25P Equatorial Mount also has a modifiable counterweight bar to avoid obstructing the tripod. And because the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft, polar alignment is reliably fast and accessible.

The most up-to-date advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology makes the CEM25P one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Includes a user-friendly Go2Nova® Hand Controller that contains a 150,000+ object database and a large four line LCD screen to facilitate setting the telescope and finding the desired celestial object.
