GOTONOVA computerized control system
The revolutionary GOTONOVA computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated goto and tracking system available on the market today. With its large celestial object database, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters - not to mention the planets, sun and moon - you'll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.
The most easy to understand controller on the market
The Go2Nova 8401 hand controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has a large LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition. Using the easy-to-use hand controller and its large LCD screen, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.
32-channel GPS module
All A-series telescope mounts come standard with a built-in 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the Go2Nova controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the Go2Nova computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.
USB port
The 8401 hand controller comes with a USB port that tremendously expands the functionalities of the already powerful system. With the USB2COM driver installed, the USB port works as an RS232 serial port. It supports firmware upgrades and computer control.
Simply a better tripod
Made of 1.25-inch heavy-duty stainless steel, the Cube tripod is sturdy yet light weight, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. A built-in wedge will allow you to convert the mount from an AA mount to a EQ one in minutes.
