About the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Computerized Altazimuth Mount...

The iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount comes with our patented Alt-Azimuth Mount, a.k.a. The Cube. This compact mount design is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail connection. In addition, there are no "dead spots" - so you can point your telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount also comes standard with AC connection. An optional DC adaptor is available so you can plug your telescope motor into your car if you''re camping or at any remote location.

 

Compatible with most tubes on the market... OTAs with dovetail connection and a weight limit of less than 7 lbs. (including accessories) are compatible with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount. (If you do not have a dovetail connection - attach your OTA using mounting rings and dovetail available at your local telescope store or the OTA manufacturer). Contact iOptron for expert''s advice on compatibility issues.

 

The most easy to understand controller on the market... The GoToNova Controller on the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has a larger LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition. Using the easy-to-use hand controller and its large LCD screen, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.

 

More precise speed control for viewing objects... The control system of the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount also allows you to slew the telescope at 5 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope''s viewfinder for as long as you wish.

 

Simply a better tripod... Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount Tripod is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. With an all-metal support system your valuable telescope will keep still even on a windy night.

 

GoToNova Computerized Control System... The revolutionary GoToNova computerized control system incorporated into the iOptron SmartStar Cube-E Mount is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of over 3,500 celestial objects, including all of the most famous galaxies, nebulae, star clusters, not to mention the planets, you''ll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button.
