The ZEQ25 Equatorial Mount Kit with 1.5" Tripod and Hard Case from iOptron features a motorized equatorial mount, Go2Nova 8408 computer hand controller, a heavy duty stainless steel adjustable tripod, and hard carrying case for the mount. The mount has a Vixen-style dovetail saddle for mounting your compatible telescope. Its built-in 32-channel GPS receiver transmits accurate location and time to the hand controller, so when you change your position, the telescope can be set up quickly with accurate information. For precise tracking, as required during long-exposure astrophotography, the ZEQ25 has the capability for you to program out the Periodic Error Correction (PEC) common to all worm gears.

The dual-axis servomotor is controlled by the GO2NOVA hand controller. This system has an internal database of 59,000+ celestial objects, with 60 user-defined objects to program yourself. The hand controller has updateable firmware through the built-in serial port. With nine slew speeds and automatic tracking capabilities, finding and keeping objects centered in the field of view is easy no matter if you're viewing the fast-moving Moon or much slower deep space subjects.

An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod designed for this mount, is included. It has 1.5" thick legs to provide a stable platform for your mount and OTA.. To safely store and carry the iEQ45, a hard plastic carrying case is also provided. it features a sturdy piano hinge, with dual locks and lock-holes for security. On the inside, custom cut foam padding perfectly protects the mount.
