Introducing the CEM40ECA, the next-generation in center-balance equatorial mounts.
With a red anodized CNC body, it looks sharp however its beauty is more than skin deep. The head weighs in at only 15.8 lbs. yet can support a payload of up to 40 lbs. Large levers on its quick-lock drive engagement system make it easy to snap its gears into place even when wearing gloves. There's little chance of your cables getting snagged with the CEM40ECA's internal cable management system. The CEM40, CEM40EC, and CEM40ECA incorporate a Universal Self-Centering Saddle (USCS) that accommodates both Losmandy and Vixen-style dovetail plates. The CEM40ECA utilizes iOptron's ultra-quiet low power consumption stepper motor drive systems. Other features such as onboard GPS, 359,000+ object library with star identification make these extremely portable and capable mounts capable of just about any application.
