Introducing iOptron CEM70-NUC equatorial mount!

Need more versatility of an equatorial mount without cable tangling? Tired of connection error with some third party control interface? Check out the iOptron NUC-ready mounts ! A CEM70AN is ready to mate with Intel® NUC minicomputer (thickness≤38mm) at the front of dovetail saddle seamlessly with the cable management system.

Following up on the success of the iOptron CEM60 center balance equatorial mount, we at iOptron are excited to introduce two new medium payload center balance mounts. The CEM70 and CEM70AN are new standard bearers for equatorial mounts in the 31.8kg payload segment. Both models are packed with advanced features however the CEM70G is the first of its type with an onboard optical guiding system increasing tracking accuracy while streamlining the components resulting in a more portable imaging setup.

Retaining the inherent properties of the center balance design, these relatively compact medium payload mounts deliver what astronomers expect in an efficient accurate portable mount. With precise GOTO pointing and accurate tracking (PE <±3.5 arcsec) the CEM70 is a solid performer for observers and imagers alike.

Innovative operational features such as the internal iPolar electronic polar scope, easy lock drive gear engagement (levers large enough to use with gloves), an advanced cable management system for the mount, iPolar, guider, and camera, and cumulatively assure users the CEM70 and 70G designed with their needs in mind.

Features

  • A new design, center-balanced equatorial mount (CEM) for maximum payload with natural stability
  • Ideal for both visual observation and astrophotography
  • Payload of 70 lbs (31.8 kg) with the mount weight of 30 lbs (13.6 kg)
  • Easy to use and reliable gear clutches
  • Precision altitude and azimuth adjustment.
  • Precision stepper motor with 0.07 arcsec accuracy for precise GOTO and accurate tracking
  • iPolarTM electronic polar scope
  • Go2Nova® 8407+ V2 controller with Advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO Technology with built in heater
  • High precision tracking with low periodic error (PE)<±3.5 arcsec
  • Permanent periodic error correction (PPEC)
  • 32-channel Global Positioning System (GPS)
  • USB connection
  • Integrated ST-4 autoguiding port
  • Advanced cable management system for mount and NUC
  • Spring loaded 8″ Vixen/Losmandy dual saddle with NUC mounting adapter
  • NEW iOptron subsidized TheSky Imaging Edition
