doubt you’ve heard about the MiniTower™. Well, the MiniTower Pro™ has
all the same, great technologies and features – just beefed up! So, you
can still mount two scopes on -- but now with more pay load. You can
still track objects-- only now the encoder resolution is six times
finer. We’ve also added a two-inch stainless-steel tripod that is much
taller for easier viewing with large scopes. So, go ahead and step up to
Extremely Portable With all the standard components (excluding the tripod) packaged in an alloy metal case, the MiniTower ProTM can
easily be carried around in a car trunk or as an airline luggage. The
whole system takes only 10 minutes to assemble. This unlimited
portability, combined with the internal GPS, gives amateur astronomers
extreme flexibility in selecting an observing location.
Accurate GOTO and Tracking Equipped with the most advanced SmartStar®GOTO technology, MiniTower ProTM is
one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts. The standard 8401
hand controller offers the superb navigation experience with an 8 line
LCD back-lit display, a 130,000 object database and a USB port for
firmware upgrade and computer control. With a typical GOTO accuracy of 1
arc minute and the SmartStar® precision auto-tracking, the MiniTower ProTM will consistently bring the celestial object of your choice to the center of the eye-piece and keep tracking for hours.
Additional Unique Features Powered
with other features such as automatic over-current protection,
automatic clutch protection for both axes, easy 3-point level
adjustment, dual scope setup with two dovetails and much more, the
MiniTower ProTM is one of the most user-friendly GOTO mounts available today.
The iOptron MAK 150mm! You have to try it to believe it!
Rumak-type 150mm Maksutov-Cassegrain is perfect for the serious amateur
astronomer who wants apochromatic refractor-type performance at an
affordable price. In fact, the multicoated optics provide almost similar
results as a 5-inch apochromatic refractor -- at a fraction of the
will be amazed at the images you'll see with the MAK 150—surprisingly.
It resolves fine details in lunar and planetary subjects splits
closely-spaced binary stars and provides exploration of deep-sky
objects. The precision design and engineering of the optics produces
images you would not expect in such a light tube.
The MAK 150
from iOptron is the only MAK of its kind that comes with a dual speed
focuser for fine-tuning your images. Also included is an attachable dew
shield—rare for a MAK—for better performance in cold temperatures.
