About the iOptron Cube-E N114 - 114mm Newtonian Reflector GoTo Telescope - Astro Blue...
Introducing the iOptron SmartStar CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian Telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 114 mm mirror is crafted with aluminum coated mirrors and exacting alignment. The precision iOptron Telescope design virtually eliminates chromatic aberration for a crisp image without a rainbow halo. You''ll be able to view planets, star clusters and nebulae up close. With the Cube E-N114 you''ll also be able to take dramatic astrophotographs. Two telescope eyepieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.
Alt-Azimuth Mount - The Cube
The iOptron SmartStar CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian 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 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 incorporated into the iOptron SmartStar CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian Telescope 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 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 CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian Telescope at 5 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the iOptron Telescope'''s viewfinder for as long as you wish.
Simply a better tripod
Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the Cube Tripod included with the iOptron SmartStar CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian 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 of the iOptron SmartStar CubeTM-E-N114 Newtonian Telescope 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 iOptron Telescope and a simple push of a button.
