Description

Details

There are few words when describing the iOptron new AZ Mount Pro (with Tripod) set up: "level and go". Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth telescope mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors; the AZ mount Pro calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation. Automatically the mount slews the instrument to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

I have two questions actually.
1. Even though it has a internal battery, can it also be powered by an external battery such as a Powertank?
2. I plan on using this mount with a Vixen ED103S refractor. Will I need a pier extension to avoid having the scope hit the mount? The OTA is about 32 inches long.
Thanks,
Carl
