Product Description

The new iOptron “Z” design mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. Given its payload capacity, this means the “Z” designed mount is unusually light—a nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. Other features include an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent obstruction with the tripod. And polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft. 
 

The ZEQ25 is equipped with the most advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Its database includes over 59,000 objects—its Go2Nova®Hand Controller is intuitive to use and its large 4-line LCD screen simplifies the process of setting telescopes and locating objects. The ZEQ25 – a new category of viewing and astrophotography. 

Features:
  • A new design “balanced” equatorial mount for maximum payload and minimum mount weight
  • Specialized astrophotography mount ideal for entry-level and intermediate Astro-photographers
  • Payload of 27 lbs (12.3 kg) with the mount-only weight of 10.4 lbs (4.7 kg)
  • Spring loaded gear system with customer adjustable loading force
  • Gear switches on both R.A. and DEC axes for easy balancing when disengaged
  • Adjustable counterweight shaft for 0º latitude operation
  • Dual-axis servomotor with enhanced optical encoder for precise GOTO and accurate tracking
  • iOptron AccuAligningTM calibrated polar scope with dark-field illumination and easy polar alignment procedure, allowing for fast and accurate polar alignment
  • Polar alignment routine for those who can’t see the Pole Star
  • Go2Nova® 8408 controller with Advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO Technology
  • Periodic error correction (PEC)
  • Integrated ST-4 autoguiding port
