Product Info
The new iEQ45 Pro GOTO German equatorial mount is the next generation premium astro-imaging mounts from iOptron. We've made a few changes on the iEQ45 including:
  • Stepper motor (instead of servo)
  • Higher gear ratio for even smoother tracking
A number of visual changes (plugs moved to sides, motor covers are singular piece, and more) The iEQ45 Pro mount offers the next generation GoTo technology from iOptron --not to mention built-in 32-bit GPS. With a payload of 45 lbs. balanced -- it comes standard with a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope and a sturdy 2-inch stainless steel tripod.
