iOptron iEQ45 Pro GoTo German Equatorial Mount w/ Tri-Pier
From the next generation of superior astro-imaging mounts from iOptron comes the new iEQ45 Pro GoTo German Equatorial Mount. The following tweaks have been made to the iEQ45:
- Stepper motor replaces servo motor
- Smoother tracking due to higher gear ratio
Many visible changes have been made to the new iEQ45 Pro including plugs being moved to the sides, single piece motor covers, and more. The iEQ45 provides iOptron's most up-to-date GoTo technology and this doesn't even take into account its built-in 32-bit GPS. It has a 45 lb. weight capacity balanced and comes with a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope. This model includes a heavy-duty Tri-Pier in lieu of the standard 2" stainless steel tripod. Fits both Losmandy and Vixen-style dovetail plates. At only 25 lbs., the compact iOptron iEQ45 is much easier to carry on remote viewing excursions.
