About the iOptron Cube-A-MC90 - 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope - Astro Blue...
The iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope system is the ideal choice for deep space viewing and astrophotography. This 90mm-diameter Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope dramatically reduces the chromatic aberration that plagues its Refractor counterparts and has a focal length of 1200mm. This light weight, ultra-compact iOptron Telescope offers a great combination of power and transportability, and brings stargazing to a whole other level.
Dual Mount: Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial - The Cube
The iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope comes with our patented Dual Mount: Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial, 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. The iOptron Mount can be level for Alt-Azimuth or locked into position for German Equatorial. 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 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.
The most easy to understand controller on the market
The GoToNova Controller included with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen on the market with 8 lines of content compared with others that only have 2 lines. Using the easy-to-use hand controller, you can easily set up your iOptron Telescope and select where you want to go.
More precise speed control for viewing objects
The control system also allows you to slew the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope at 9 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the iOptron Telescope''s viewfinder for as long as you wish.
The #8401 hand controller included with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope comes with a USB port that tremendously expands the functionalities of the already powerful iOptron Telescope system. With the USB2COM driver installed, the USB port works as an RS232 serial port. It supports firmware upgrades and computer control.
Simply a better tripod
Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the Cube Tripod included with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-MC90 Telescope is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your iOptron Mount locked securely. With an all-metal support system your valuable iOptron 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-A-MC90 Telescope is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of 130,000 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 Cube-A-MC90 Telescopes come standard with a 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. 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.
