Product Description

Not everyone needs an equatorial mount, but they want a computerized goto mount.  It has been difficult to find an alt-az mount, that is fully computerized goto, and be able to hold a good bit of weight as well.  Well, iOptron AZ Pro is the mount you have been searching for.  With its simple "level and go" set-up makes aligning on the skies virtually automatic. Using its built-in precision level indicator, simply level the mount and turn on the power. The AZ Mount Pro's computerized alt-azimuth system takes it from there. 
You won't have to pull up any information on your computer or smart device concenring your location.  Using its onboard 32-channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors, the AZ Mount Pro calculates where and when it is on Earth, as well as the telescope orientation. The iOptron mount then automatically slews your scope to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. Simply confirm that the bright object truly is in the center of the field and your iOptron AZ Mount Pro is ready to go to and track over 212,000 celestial objects.
The iOptron AZ Mount Pro has a 33 lb. payload capacity. By adding an optional #8953 Vixen-style dovetail saddle to the opposite side of the mount, you can simultaneously mount a second telescope or DSLR camera/lens combo weighing up to 10 lbs. onto the AZ Mount Pro. 

Included in this package:

AZ Mount Head (#8920)
