iOptron's ZEQ25 Equatorial Mount features a motorized equatorial mount, Go2Nova 8408 computer hand controller, a 1.5" stainless steel adjustable tripod, and the AccuAlign illuminated polar scope. 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 or observation sessions, the ZEQ25 has the capability for you to program out the Periodic Error Correction (PEC) common to all worm gears. With a maximum payload capacity of up to 27lbs, this mount is ideal for most medium to large refractor, reflector, or catadioptric OTAs with Vixen-style dovetail plates and still be able to handle imaging rigs.

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, and its firmware is updateable 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, and the accessory tray features a locking leg spreader to add increased stability and reduce vibrations. To accommodate a wide range of users, it is adjustable from 18.1 to 28.3".
