About the iOptron SmartStar-R80 w/GPS - 80mm GoTo Refractor Telescope - Astro Blue...
The iOptron SmartStar-R80 GPS is an 80mm refractor iOptron Telescope equipped with the award-winning Cube iOptron Mount. It'''s known for its quick setup process and easy-to-learn features such as automatic star pointing and tracking. A 32-channel internal GPS module also allows for automatic location synchronization.
Alt-Azimuth Mount - The Cube
The iOptron SmartStar-R80 w/GPS - 80mm GoTo Refractor Telescope comes with the patented Alt-Azimuth Mount, a.k.a. The Cube. This compact iOptron 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 iOptron Telescope to ANYWHERE above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This iOptron Mount also comes standard with iOptron AC Adapter 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.
GoToNova Computerized Control System
The revolutionary iOptron Telescope GoToNova computerized control system incorporated into the iOptron SmartStar-R80 w/GPS - 80mm GoTo Refractor Telescope is by far the most technologically advanced automated iOptron Mount tracking system available on the market today. With a database of over 5000 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 iOptron Telescope and a simple push of a button.
32-Channel GPS Module
All iOptron SmartStar-R80 w/GPS - 80mm GoTo Refractor Telescopes come standard with a 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation. Simply turn on the GoToNova Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your iOptron Telescope location and time with the GoToNova computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.
