iOptron 8900-TP overview

  • 1Description

iOptron brings together their unique compact "Level and Go" mount with a portable yet incredibly stable support system to create the AZ Mount Pro GoTo Alt-Az Mount with Tri-Pier. This combination of mount and support system is an ideal solution for users with mid-sized optical tube assemblies (OTAs) who require a solid and reliable platform for observing small or dim objects or for longer-exposure astrophotography.

  • AZ Mount Pro GoTo Alt-Az Mount (Head Only)

    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 onboard 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 an 8-line, 21-character backlit 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 setup 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 optical tube assembly (OTA) for users who 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.

    iOptron combined the strength and stability of a pier, with the portability and leveling flexibility of a tripod to produce their Tri-Pier; offered here with white legs and a black center column. Designed to provide a rock-solid platform for their GoTo mounts, the pier and leg tops are made of lightweight and durable aluminum, with stainless steel leg extensions. Its feet have built-in vibration-suspension pads for increased stability and visual clarity. It has a payload capacity of 220 pounds to handle even the largest OTAs and accessories, with an adjustable height from 31.5 to 42.5" and an uneven ground range of 3.35" (8.5cm). It folds up into a relatively compact 26 x 12.8" package, and the legs store inside the pier.
