Details

The new iOptron iEQ45 Pro Equatorial Mount is excellent for the professional astrophotographer due to its AccuAlign system that uses GPS technology for quick alignment for easy setup which is necessary in CCD imaging. It also has a light weight head while still maintaining a high capacity payload.

iOptron has taken all the fundamentals of the original iEQ45 Pro and added some new features/improvements. The most noticeable mechanical change is the replacement of a servo motor into a stepper motor. Some of these improvements and changes include:

  • Stepper motor (instead of servo)
  • Higher gear ratio (now same gears as CEM60)
