We have a new mount coming out at the end of this month...

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.

#8000AZ iEQ45-AZ Retail $1899 US & Canada

What do you mean by "next generation GOTO technology", is it different from the current iOptron 45?
