In the Solar 60 GPS Refractor Telescope, iOptron created a telescope rig that merges versatility with portability to give you a platform for viewing the Sun, Moon, and planets with full Go-To capabilities, set-up assistance, and automatic tracking. For astrophotography and imaging, iOptron includes their iE1300 eyepiece imager. This CCTV camera fits in the focuser and boasts a 1.3MP sensor, auto white balance, and is plug-and-play compatible with Windows OS for observing and capturing your images.

The 60mm f/6 doublet refractor optical tube assembly (OTA) features a short 360mm focal length with a front thread-on removable solar filter. Utilizing a removable filter allows the scope to be used for viewing the Sun with it on or viewing the night sky with it off. The OTA is mounted on the iOptron Cube-E GoTo Alt-Az mount. This compact mount measures just 8 x 5 x 5" with a 7 lb payload capacity. It has a Vixen-style dovetail saddle to allow you to easily swap out the OTA that comes with it for a different or more powerful one. The Cube's unique design eliminates "dead spots" enabling you to point your telescope to any point above the horizon, unlike other mounts which tend to block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount comes with a 110 VAC adapter to power it if you're near civilization, but if you're heading off the grid it can run on eight user-supplied AA batteries. An aluminum tripod is also provided so you have all you need to start your observation session.

The brains of this rig is the GoTo Nova 8405 computer controller. This handheld unit features a 5000+ object database with 128 user-defined customizable objects for your favorite celestial bodies. The easy-to-use menu-driven system displays on a 4-line 21-character back-lit screen. This fully GoTo-capable unit has automatic tracking for fast moving near-space objects such as the Moon and planets, and slower moving deep-sky objects like nebulae and galaxies. For set-up or manual use it has five slew speeds starting at 2x. The GoTo Nova controller is powered by the mount to make use easier and simple while reducing the unit's weight.
