iOptron CEM70 Center Balanced Equatorial Mount

Following the success of the iOptron CEM60 center balanced equatorial mount, iOptron introduces two new medium payload center balance mounts. The iOptron CEM70 and revolutionary CEM70G are the new standard bearers for computerized equatorial mounts in the 70Ib payload segment. Both models are packed with advanced features however the CEM70G is the first of its type with an onboard optical guiding system increasing tracking accuracy while streamlining the components resulting in a more portable imaging setup.

Retaining the inherent properties of the center balance design, these relatively compact medium payload mounts deliver what astronomers expect in an efficient accurate portable mount. Precise GOTO pointing and accurate tracking (PE <±3.5 arcsec) indicate the iOptron CEM70 is a solid performer for observers and imagers alike.

Innovative features such as the internal iPolar electronic polar scope, easy lock drive gear engagement (levers large enough to use with gloves), an advanced cable management system for the mount, iPolar, guider, camera, cumulatively assure users that CEM70 and 70G are designed with their needs in mind. On top of the built-in guiding system, the CEM70G also comes standard with WiFi and USB 3.0 optional WiFi (CEM70 only). The CEM70 and CEM70G come with a hard case.
