A new iEQ45 mount from iOptron
Posted 12 March 2013 - 03:00 PM
The iEQ45-AZ German equatorial-altazimuth GOTO mount is the latest development of iOptron's premium equatorial mount, the iEQ45. It offers superb astro-imaging capability and portable visual viewing. Plus, it's able to change from altazimuth mode to equatorial mode for a product with high performance in both positions.
The iEQ45-AZ mount offers the next generation GOTO technology from iOptron (and includes GPS). With a payload of 45 lbs. for EQ mode and 90 lbs for AA mode (dual mounting) – it comes standard with a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope and a rigid portable pier. It also fits both Vixen and Losmandy-type mounting plates. Its lighter weight (only 25 lbs.) makes it much easier to carry.

What do you mean by "next generation GOTO technology", is it different from the current iOptron 45?
Would love to know more about this too, please
