iOptron iEQ45 Pro mount with tripod

The new iEQ45 Pro GOTO German equatorial mount is the next generation premium astro-imaging mounts!

iOptron made a few changes on the iEQ45 including:

  • Stepper motor (instead of servo)
  • Higher gear ratio
  • A number of visual changes (ex. plugs moved to sides, motor covers are singular piece, and more)

The iEQ45TM mount offers the next generation GoTo technology from iOptron — not to mention built-in 32-bit GPS. With a payload of 20kg balanced – it comes standard with a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope. It also fits both Vixen and Losmandy-type mounting plates. Its lighter weight (only 11kg) makes it much easier to carry.

Included Accessories:

  • 12V Car Re-charger and Cable
  • 2 amp AC Adaptor
  • Controller Cable-6P6C
  • RS232-RJ9 cable
  • Go2Nova Hand Controller 8407
