Synopsis: iOptron have just announced their new CEM120 mount is nearing readiness for launch near the end of 2015

Building on the already hugely successful CEM60 mount, world leader in portable imaging mounts iOptron have just announced their new CEM120 mount is nearing readiness for launch near the end of 2015. 

Beta testing has been ongoing for some time, enabling iOptron to confirm more technical information for the final product configuration.

The CEM120 is designed to bring a higher capacity, high accuracy and lighter weight to the market with a 54kg (120lb) maximum payload* and a head weight of only 24.7 kg (54.5 lbs). 

A CEM120 "EC" version will also be available with a very high tracking accuracy.

We assume payload quoted applies to a concentrated mass OTA. Imaging payloads will vary, depending on imaging application, focal length and optical tube shape.

Our current estimated price is under £4000.

Here's a quick run down of vital statistics to help you compare with other mounts on the market:
