iOptron's astro blue Cube-E GoTo Alt-Az Mount sports a compact mount design that measures a mere 8 x 5 x 5" while being a functional & flexible motorized & computer-controlled unit for most star gazing duties. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is compatible with all telescope OTAs with a Vixen-style dovetail plate up to 7 lb including accessories. The 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. A 1" stainless steel tripod is provided so all you need is a compatible OTA to start your observation session.

Included with the mount 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.
