Details

The MiniTower is the perfect combination of capacity and portability.

 

25 lbs. of Payload   Born out of the popular iOptron CubeTM, MiniTowerTM is the ultimate observing solution for people who are searching for a capable and portable GoTo telescope mount to counter light pollution in their backyards and for travel convenience. With a standard payload of 25 lbs, a rock solid 1.5”alloy/stainless steel tripod, metal worm and gear and two dovetail adaptors-- The MiniTowerTM is capable of handling most OTAs. 

Extremely Portable   With all the standard components (excluding the tripod) packaged in an alloy metal case, MiniTowerTM can easily be carried around in a car trunk or as an airline luggage. The whole system takes only 10 minutes to assemble. This unlimited portability, combined with the internal GPS, gives amateur astronomers extreme flexibility in selecting an observing location.  

Accurate GoTo and Tracking   Equipped with the most advanced SmartStarÒ GoTo technology, MiniTowerTM is one of the most powerful and accurate GoTo mounts. The standard 8401 hand controller offers the superb navigation experience with an 8 line LCD back-lit display, a 130,000 object database and a USB port for easy connection with ASCOM compliant PC planetarium programs. With a typical GoTo accuracy of 1 arc minute and the SmartStarÒ precision auto-tracking, MiniTowerTM will consistently bring the celestial object of your choice to the center of the eye-piece and keep tracking for hours.

The MAK 150mm
The iOptron MAK 150mm! You have to try it to believe it!

The iOptron Rumak-type 150m Maksutov-Cassegrain is perfect for the serious amateur astronomer who wants apochromatic refractor-type performance at an affordable price. In fact, the multicoated optics provide almost similar results as a 5-inch apochromatic refractor -- at a fraction of the cost.

 

 
You will be amazed at the images you'll see with the MAK 150m—surprisingly, an f12 that can view Jupiter's cloud bands and also M31! The precision design and engineering of the optics produces images you would not expect in such a light tube.
 
The MAK 150m from iOptron is the only MAK of its kind that comes with a dual speed focuser for fine-tuning your images. Also included is an attachable dew shield—rare for a MAK—for better performance in cold temperatures.
