    Optron’s ultra compact EQ/AZ GoTo mount — introducing The SkyHunter Portable EQ/AZ

    Fifteen years after releasing the innovational Cube AZ/EQ GoTo mount, the SkyHunter takes the next step toward perfection. It is the lightest and most compact full function portable goto mount in iOptron’s exceptional history.

    Weighing in at only 1.3kg (including internal rechargeable battery), the SkyHunter Portable EQ/AZ is capable of supporting an 5kg payload in both equatorial and alt-azimuth modes. The SkyHunter  mount features four tracking rates, 1X or sidereal, 1/2X for sky and landscape combined, solar and lunar. All 4 tracking rates work in both northern and southern hemispheres. The SkyHunter mount can be controlled by an iOS or Android SmartPhone/tablet, an optional 8410 hand controller, or a computer via ASCOM, INDI or embedded drive.

    (PLEASE NOTE – telescopes shown are *not* included.)
