The New iEQ45-GT Mount

April 13, 2011 (Boston, MA, USA)

iOptron is proud to announce its latest innovative iEQ German equatorial mount for the serious astronomer – The iEQ45-GT.


The iEQ45-GT

·         Accurate—Extremely accurate tracking. Our test results consistently show a PE of less than 1 Arc second. Also, the iEQ45-GT has a built-in high precision encoder that allows for double close-loop control.

·         Affordable—Compared to similar products that cost 2, 3 or 4 times as much—so more folks can afford the iEQ45-GT

·         Compact—The iEQ45-GT is easier to carry compared to typical products at this level.

·         Stable—Ideal for astrophotography. The iEQ45-GT offers superior stability for serious astronomers needing to track for longer periods of time.


Available fall 2011.


You can see our results here. But don’t take our word for it—test it for yourself!  We’ll have the iEQ45-GT at NEAF this weekend. If you’re in the New York City area, come by and see for yourself!
