Say hello to the iOptron HEM27 – a cutting-edge hybrid harmonic drive equatorial GoTo mount that redefines your stargazing experience! It incorporates iPolar, an electronic polar scope, to simplify and enhance polar alignment accuracy.

The iOptron HEM27 harmonic mounts are lightweight, high-payload powerhouses that reshape the way you interact with the night sky. Despite weighing a mere 8.15 lbs, these compact champions can handle an impressive 29.74 lbs payload, eliminating the need for bulky counterweights or shafts.

With the innovative RA harmonic drive technology coupled with a backlash-free DEC worm/belt drive, the HEM27 offers an unrivaled weight-to-payload efficiency. Its visually striking black anodized, CNC machined, all-metal body isn't just eye candy – it's a rugged and reliable base that will deliver optimal performance for many moons to come. Unique features like an electronic friction brake and power-down memory allow the mount to securely stop and resume GoTo tracking or slewing even during sudden power loss – no need to realign from scratch.

This iOptron HEM27 package comes with iPolar for easy and precise polar alignment, along with a hand controller and case. The tripod is optional. Other HEM27 models include the base version (H272, without iPolar) and the EC version with iPolar, a high-precision RA encoder, and Real Time PEC (H274A).
