Product Details

  • Following up on the success of the iOptron CEM60 center balance equatorial mount, we at OPT Corp are excited to introduce a new medium payload center balance mount, by iOptron. The CEM70EC2 dual high resolution encoder mount the new standard bearer for equatorial mounts in the 70lb payload segment. The mount is packed with advanced features however the CEM70EC2 is the first of its type with dual axes high resolution encoders increasing tracking accuracy while streamlining the components resulting in a more portable imaging setup.

    Retaining the inherent properties of the center balance design, these relatively compact medium payload mounts deliver what astronomers expect in an efficient accurate portable mount. With precise GOTO pointing and accurate tracking, the CEM70EC2 is a solid performer for observers and imagers alike. 

    Innovative operational features such as the internal iPolar electronic polar scope, easy lock drive gear engagement (levers large enough to use with gloves), an advanced cable management system for the mount, iPolar, guider, and camera, and cumulatively assure users the CEM70EC2 designed with their needs in mind.
