An extraordinary innovation in mount design, the iOptron CEM60 equatorial mount is now with integrated electronic polar scope, iPolar!


iOptron's patented Center-balanced Equatorial Mount, CEM puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. This makes the mount extremely light compared to its payload--a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. And polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.

iOptron CEM60 Center Balanced Equatorial Mount with iPolar Electronic Polar Scope

An extraordinary innovation in mount design, the iOptron CEM60 equatorial mount is now with integrated electronic polar scope, iPolar!

iOptron's patented Center-balanced Equatorial Mount, CEM puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. This makes the mount extremely light compared to its payload--a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. And polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.

The CEM60 is equipped with the most advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Its database includes over 200,000 objects. The other features include an adjustable counterweight bar, magnetically loaded gear system, gear switches on both R.A. and DEC axes, screw/worm type latitude adjuster and built-in or customized cable management system. The CEM60 - a new category (and payload capacity) of mounts for viewing and astrophotography.

(Tripod/Pier not included.)
