About the iOptron Cube-A R80 - 80mm GoTo Refractor Telescope - Orange
Introducing the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor Telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 80 mm lens is crafted with a low dispersion glass that is ground and polished to exact specifications. The precision iOptron Telescope design is excellent for viewing bright stars, planets and their moons, as well as for bird watching and other land objects. Two telescope eyepieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.
Note: This product (R) has an Orange-colored OTA.
Alt-Azimuth Mount - The Cube
The iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-R80 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 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 Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor 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 Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor Telescope at 9 different drive speeds, keeping the object within the iOptron Telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.
Stainless Steel Tripod
Made of 1-inch heavy-duty stainless steel the Cube Tripod included with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor Telescope is sturdy yet elegant, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your iOptron Mount locked securely.
The #8401 hand controller included with the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor 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.
GoToNova Computerized Control System
The revolutionary GoToNova computerized control system incorporated into the iOptron SmartStar Cube-A-R80 GoTo Refractor Telescope is by far the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. With a database of over 130,00 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-R80 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.
