Product Details

  • 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.

iOptron AZ Mount Pro is Fantastic!

I've had my AZ Mount Pro for a little over a year now and absolutely love it. iOptron is not kidding when they say "level and go". It sets up in minutes, is accurate, has built-in rechargeable battery, built-in WIFI, etc. Solid as a rock too. Not designed as an astrophotography platform, but actually works quite well on the brighter objects. Tracking is VERY good for an ALT/AZ mount. You get great performance from it as long as you do an accurate LEVEL and one star alignment. And, a good idea to always SYNC to each of your targets - makes a big difference. I also have an iOptron CEM40EC which I use mainly for serious astro shooting, and the AZ Mount Pro for visual and brighter astro shots if I am too lazy to use the CEM40EC. I've attached two photos: (1) shows mount in action with a Meade LX200 on the main mount side, and (2) a 72mm refractor with a cooled ZWO color camera on secondary side. You can see on the PC screen that SharpCap has no problem Live Stacking the image of Horsehead nebula. Again, it was more of a test to see how well the mount would handle the tracking. It worked. Of course I was shooting subs at about 30sec with gain up to about 300 and live stacking, but shows it will do it. Overall this mount is a pleasure to use and very easy to set up. Again, LEVEL is key. It is also a good idea to get balance good.

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.
