You’ve seen the MiniTower™… Now you’ve got to go Pro.

Bigger!   No 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 the Pro! 
 
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.
 
Plus...
 
The iOptron  MAK 150mm! You have to try it to believe it!

The iOptron 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 cost.
 
You 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.
