Introducing the AZ Mount Pro featuring "level and go" intuitive GOTO setup
We call it "level and go", the term used to describe iOptron 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. Automatically the mount 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.

Do not be concerned if the box appears to have been opened. All mounts are removed from their boxes, and checked. Firmware is upgraded to the latest version and then the box is re-sealed. We apply a unique one-off, anti-tamper serial number to every iOptron product supported under our warranty. An image of the serial number is shown below. This can be found inside the battery compartment of the Minitower mounts - simply remove the battery holder, and the serial number should be immediately visible. This entitles you to two years of warranty support from date of purchase, provided you can produce the original sales invoice with that serial number on it, and the serial number on the product isn't showing signs of tampering. Legitimate iOptron products purchased from Offical Distributor Altair Astro UK and our official European partners will all have this unique serial number.

AVAILABILITY: Due to high demand we are importing this mount by air freight to fulfill orders quicker. There will be a wait time of approximately 8 days after order placement and payment.
