  • The iOptron CEM40EC is a Center Balance EQ mount with high precision real time Period Error Correction with a tracking accuracy of 0.25 arcsec RMS

  • This mount moves the main point of balance of the mount to a more centralized position versus standard equatorial mounts.  This altered design allows for exceptional weight to payload capacity.  The CEM40EC mount head weighs just 15.8 pounds but can carry up to 40 pounds.

  • Integrated iPolar electronic polar scope allows for accurate alignment with or without a pole star.

  • Large levers on the quick-lock drive engagement make snapping into gear easy with gloved fingers.

  • Internal cable management.

  • Includes 1.5" steel leg tripod with accessory tray, hard case for the mount head and power adapter.

Product Description

The iOptron CEM40EC Center Balance Equatorial mount is the high precision model of the CEM40 with a tracking accuracy of 0.25 arcsec RMS and real time period error correction.  This mount provides a high payload to weight ratio.  The mount head itself weighs a very manageable 15.8 pounds but the mount can carry 40 pounds, excluding the counterweight making it well suited to medium sized imaging systems, heavier refractors and larger cameras or complex imaging trains.  Smart design features like the Self Centering Saddle (USCS) which will accomodate both D and V series dovetails, large and easy to use quick lock gear clutches can be easily switched with gloved hands, and the built in iPolar electronic polar finder make this a user friendly equatorial mount.   The all metal CNC machined body is designed for rigidity and precision.

The CEM40EC includes a Go2Nova hand controller with a massive database and built in heater and 32 channel GPS.  An integrated ST4 auto guide port and USB communication port are ready to accept your guiding and control accessories.  Plus advanced cable management keep your cables neatly tucked out of the way.
