Description

Introducing the AZ Mount Pro featuring "level and go" intuitive GOTO setup.

We call it "level and go", the term used to describe iOptron's new AZ Mount Pro's simple set up routing. Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth telescope mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors, the AZ mount Pro calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation. The mount automatically slews the instrument to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.
