iOptron's AZ Mount Pro Head combines multiple technologies to produce a mount that requires minimal input from the user while providing full GoTo capabilities. This technology is referred to as "Level and Go" by iOptron because that's about all you need to do. Using its built-in level indicator, you simply level the mount and turn on the power. Utilizing the on-board 32-channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors, the mount calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation then automatically slews to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. All you need to do is confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GoTo functionality.
Included with the mount is the Go2Nova 8407 computer controller. This handheld unit features a 212,000 object database with 60 user-defined customizable objects for your favorite celestial bodies. The easy-to-use menu-driven system displays on a 8-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 nine slew speeds starting at 1x and topping out at 10°/sec. The Go2Nova controller is powered by the mount to make use easier and simple while reducing the unit's weight. For increased functionality, the mount is also equipped with a Wi-Fi module for wireless connectivity to smartphones, tablets, and computers.
iOptron is offering the AZ Mount Pro GoTo Alt-Az Mount here without a tripod or OTA for users that already have them and are looking to upgrade their mount, but to protect the head during transport and storage a hard aluminum case is included.
