Introducing the iOptron SmartStar-G with GPS Entry Level Computerized telescope mount. Our patented Alt-Azimuth Mount, a.k.a. The Cube, rated 4-star by Sky and Telescope Magazine is one of the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a dove-tail connection. In addition, it has built-in GPS for automatic location inputs. And at only 12 lbs. you can take it anywhere and get accurate tracking! The GoToNova hand Controller on each SmartStar is easy to use with menus for planets, stars, nebulas, and constellations. It also has a large LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition (so you don’t have to keep scrolling to read the screen). The controller is designed so you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go. With a database of 50,000 celestial objects, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters-- not to mention the planets, sun and moon-- you’ll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. The SmartStar-G also comes with a built-in USB port for use with planetary/computer software and ASCOM compatible devices. The mount comes standard with an AC connection plug, USB cable, tripod, hand controller, and mount.
