iOptron HAE69C Hybrid Harmonic Drive Equatorial GoTo Mount with or without Handset

The HAE69B iMate mount is now also available without the iMate on board computer and is known as the HAE69C. The HAE69C has a USB Port on the mount base and Saddle that connects directly to the main board for mount control. It also features built in Wi-Fi for connection. When purchased with the handset the mount features the Go2Nova 8411 with OLED display.

These lightweight, compact, medium payload titans will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at 19 lbs with a payload capability of 69 lbs without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE69 makes this vision possible.

Utilising state-of-the-art strain wave gear technology for both RA and DEC movement, the HAE69 mounts deliver unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodised, all-metal CNC machined body is a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years. Unique features such as an electronic friction brake and power-down memory allow the mount to safely stop and resume a GoTo slew or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (No need to realign and start from the beginning).

Includes an aluminium carrying case.
