Product Description

iOptron has introduced the new iEQ30 Pro German Equatorial Mount, improving the performance of an already proven instrument . Some included features are a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope, built-in GPS and 1.5" stainless steel tripod legs. Tracking has also been improved in addition to GOTO capabilities with the high resolution 0.11 arc second encoders while maintaining a lightweight design.
