    iOptron 8408 reviews

    Go2Nova 8408 Hand Controller for CEM25/CEM25EC/CEM25P Mounts is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Accesory With the Sky Glider it simplifies settings and has bonus Polaris Aligning screen. Easy to use.
    Date published: 2018-04-08
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not useful for Sky Guider Pro I'm new to this and bought the Sky Guider Pro along with the 8408 controller thinking I would have goto capability. (it didn't say) Contacted Ioptron and since the SGP moves only in one direction there will be no use for this controller. You can find polaris and have a clock for $150, I can get the app for the SGP for $1 to locate Polaris. I'm sure with a CEM mount it would be useful but B & H sells those included with the 8408. Useless to me and returning.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you've got the mount, you gotta get the controller. The controller makes set up so much easier. I can't imagine doing it without. Being lighted makes it so easy to use in the dark.
