About this product

Model:  iop_cubepro
Part Number:  8200

Portable, easy-to-carry, precision alt-azimuth GOTO mount.

This new CubePro mount has completely redesigned electronics and firmware and iOptron's latest GOTONOVA® computerised control system. Essentially it is a compact sturdy mount that features the same precision goto and tracking technology found in the MiniTower, packaged into a portable, easy-to-carry system. 

The Go2Nova® 8408 hand controller features over 150,000 celestial objects with a 4-line backlit LCD screen. A 32 channel internal GPS, easy alignment procedure and accurate GoTo and auto-tracking reduces setup time.

The standard Vixen-type dovetail saddle makes this mount compatible with many different OTAs.
