iOptron Mounts and Tripods
iOptron specialise in the manufacture of innovative mounts; the “Z” design places the payload closer to the centre of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. Which allows iOptron products to be lighter, and more portable, than other products with a similar payload.
The Cube and Cube Pro series of mounts are among the most flexible on the market. This is due to their dual mount system allowing for the mount to be level for use as an alt-azimuth, or locked into position for German equatorial. They are also designed to eliminate “dead spots” allowing you to look at any point above the horizon whereas other products may block your view in places.
iOptron’s Minitower series allow for the mounting of two telescopes simultaneously while still maintaining a light, easily transportable, system that can be set up in mere minutes.
The majority of iOptron’s products come with GOTO autotracking software and an optional app is available for Android and iPhone to help with polar alignment.
