iOptron's ZEQ25 Equatorial Mount features a motorized equatorial mount, Go2Nova 8408 computer hand controller, a 2" stainless steel adjustable tripod, the AccuAlign illuminated polar scope, and hard carrying case for the mount. 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.

A heavy-duty adjustable-height stainless steel tripod, designed for this mount, is included. It has thick 2" legs with a maximum height of 52" to the platform. Its 300lb payload capacity can handle just about any OTA and accessory/imaging rig. It features a metal accessory tray that locks the legs in-place for added stability and spiked feet to put it on a sure footing in rough or loose ground. To safely store and carry the iEQ45, a hard aluminum 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.
