Part Number:  SHEQA

INCOMING: iOptron SkyHunter Portable AZ/EQ GOTO Mount with iPolar

IOptron's lightest and most compact full function GOTO mount. 

Weighs only 1.3kg / 2.9 lbs (including internal rechargeable battery) but can support 5kg / 11 lbs payload in both equatorial and alt-azimuth modes. 

Super-quiet dual-axis servomotors with optical encoders and synchronous belt drive. 

Four tracking rates: 1x, 1/2x, solar and lunar (1x celestial tracking for imaging the sky and stars. 1/2x speed for imaging both starry night and landscape at the same time). All four work in both northern and southern hemispheres. 

Built-in rechargeable battery for up to 10 hours operation (20°C). 

Integrated WiFi so can be controlled via SkySafari 6 Plus installed on iOS or Android smart phone/tablet, or a computer via ASCOM, INDI or embedded drive. Can also be controlled using an optional 8410 hand controller. 

The removable alt-azimuth base features a convenient bubble level, degree markings for altitude and a built in post for azimuth control.

The SkyHunter head (without base) can also be mounted directly to any standard photographic tripod with 1/4” or 3/8” threads.
