The iOptron ZEQ25 "Z" Design Equatorial Mount

The iOptron ZEQ25 "Z" design mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. Given its payload capacity of 27 lb., this means the "Z" designed mount is unusually light - a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. Other features of this innovative iOptron mount include an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent obstruction with the tripod.  Polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.

The iOptron ZEQ25 is equipped with the most advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available.The database of the Go2Nova hand controller includes over 59,000 objects, and it is intuitive to use.  The large 4-line LCD screen simplifies the process of setting up your telescope and locating objects throughout the night.

Questions & Answers

Product Questions

Can i mount Orion 10" f/3.9 Newtonian Astrograph Reflector on it ?
Can i connect this mount to my laptop to trigger photos or tracking?
Can I get the mount only?  I have the tripod my old Celestron Goto EQ mount came with I'd like to re-use for this mount.  (it's sturdier, I think, with 2" stainless legs).  The old C6N-GT.
I'm not clear on how much telescope weight can be supported with the one counterweight that is supplied. By moving the weight down its shaft it will accommodate a greater 'scope weight than when up. What is the max with the one weight?
