The SmartEQ Pro Equatorial Mount Kit with Hard Case from iOptron features the SmartEQ Pro mount, Go2Nova 8408 computer hand controller, an adjustable stainless steel tripod, polar aligning scope and a hard carrying case for the mount. The mount is compatible with any Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) with a Vixen-type dovetail saddle. The mount is powered by 8 AA batteries, and can run for up to 16 hours of continuous viewing, whether you're stargazing in the backyard or far off the grid.

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 stainless steel tripod is included for the mount and your telescope as well as a hard carrying case designed to hold and protect the Equatorial mount.
