Product information

Born out of the popular iOptron CubeTM and iEQTM mounts, the SmartEQTM Pro mount is the ultimate Grab N Go German equatorial GOTO mount fitting into almost everyones budget. It is ideal for visual observation and wide field astrophotography. The compact design and light weight make travelling with the mount easy.

The newly updated SmartEQTM Pro+ is a fully computerized mount with a database of 150,000 objects. It offers the next generation GOTO technology from iOptron. The Go2Nova® Hand Controller is intuitive with a large LCD screen, with which you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to navigate.

The SmartEQTM Pro+ is universally compatible with any tubes using a Vixen-style dovetail connection, making it useful for beginners as well as hobbyists with multiple tubes.
