About this product

Model:  ioptron_hae29_ec
Part Number:  HE294A

Ioptron HAE29EC Strain Wave AZ/EQ Mounting.

(The iPolar is not shown in photos but is included and fits neatly over the bubble level). 

The HAE29EC features a high-precision RA axis encoder that delivers very high tracking accuracy, enough that many will choose to image without guiding. 

This light weight, high payload mount delivers an astronomy experience like never before. 

Imagine a mount head weighing less than 8 lbs, with a payload capability of 29.7 lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts has made this possible.

Utilising state-of-the-art strain wave gear technology for both the RA and DEC axes, the HAE29 delivers unparalleled weight to payload efficiency.

Its black anodised all-metal CNC machined body provides a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years. 

Unique features such as an electronic friction break and power-down memory enable the mount to stop and resume a GoTo slew safely or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (no need to realign and start from the beginning).

The mount can be controlled by a computer, either via ASCOM/Commander for a Windows PC or a third-party INDI driver for MacOS software, a SmartPhone/Tablet via iOptron Commander Lite or an App like SkySafari, or a Raspberry Pi device via INDI driver.
