iOptron AZ Mount Pro with LiteRoc 1.75-Inch Tripod

There are few words when describing the iOptron AZ Mount Pro with LiteRoc Tripod set up: "level and go". Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth telescope mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors; the AZ mount Pro calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation. Automatically the mount slews the instrument to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.

The LiteRoc tripod features a 1.75-inch upper leg section with a 1.5-inch diameter lower section (same as a 2-inch tripod), resulting in a lighter tripod with stability similar to a 2-inch.  It also has improved leg cuffs and sockets for more rigidity and redesigned leg lock levers.

Review of my recent purchase

The overall experience was very good. The phone sale representative was courteous. I was promised a promotional T-shirt with my purchase, which I did not receive. The items were shipped promptly. I do miss no longer having a retail salesroom as previously existed on Oceanside.
