iOptron HAE69B-iMate Dual AZ/EQ SWG Mount with iPolar
Keeping pace with rapidly developing technology, the iOptron HAE69 and HAE69EC SWG mounts have evolved into the HAE69B iMate.
The iMate models feature a powerful 64-bit ARM-based onboard computer with Wi-Fi, preloaded KStars planetarium software, Ekos control and automation tool and INDI drivers. This hardware-software combination will support most current and future devices (cameras, focusers, filter wheels, etc.) from multiple brands.
With 32Gb eMMC storage and a slot for up to 64Gb TF (micro SD) memory, the iMate can control and capture an entire automated imaging session. The iMate is cross-platform; use it with Windows, IOS, Linux, Android, etc.
HAE69B iMate dual SWG Alt-az/ Eq mounts now have an internal main board and no longer require use with a handset.
These lightweight, compact, medium payload titans will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at 19 lbs with a payload capability of 69 lbs without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE69 makes this vision possible.
Utilising state-of-the-art strain wave gear technology for both RA and DEC movement, the HAE69 mounts deliver unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodised, all-metal CNC machined body is a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years. Unique features such as an electronic friction brake and power-down memory allow the mount to safely stop and resume a GoTo slew or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (No need to realign and start from the beginning).
Includes an aluminium carrying case.
