Description

The iOptron SmartStar® CubeProTM-90 System combines the same precision goto and tracking technology found in the MiniTowerTM-- but packaged in a portable, easy-to-carry system. The CubeProTM mount features a GOTONOVA® computerized control system with about 130,000 objects and an 8-line backlit LCD screen. A 32 channel internal GPS, easy alignment procedure and accurate GoTo and auto-tracking minimize the setup time. 1" stainless steel tripod legs with metal platform and metal hinges makes the mount very sturdy. The compact design of the tripod and the mount makes it easy to carry around in a travel case, and the mount assembly time takes less than 5 minutes. The standard Vixen-type dovetail saddle makes this mount compatible with many different OTAs. CubePro mount is compatible with all ASCOM compliant planetarium programs and many other programs such as The Sky X, Starry Night and Sky Safari.
