A "tiny titan," the 5.5 lb HEM15 Hybrid GoTo Equatorial Mount with iPolar from iOptron can support an 18 lb telescope optical tube assembly with no need for a counterweight. Utilizing strain wave drive technology for the right ascension movement and backlash-free worm/belt declination drive design, the HEM15 is remarkably lightweight and compact. Its black anodized, all-metal CNC-machined body is built for years of service. The HEM15's electronic friction break and power-down memory allow the mount to safely stop and resume a GoTo slew or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (no need to realign and start from the beginning).
