Center-balanced Equatorial Mount, a mount whisper quiet and light weight! The mount uses up to 60% less GOTO power consumption than other mounts in category.
With high precision optical encoder system and advanced control technology, the CEM25EC will track a star at a periodic error less than 0.3 arc second, the only mount under $2000!
The "Z" design mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability. Given its payload capacity, this means the "Z" designed mount is unusually light. A nice benefit when setting up at a remote site. Other features include an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent obstruction with the tripod. And polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time since the polar scope is not blocked by the declination shaft.
The CEM25 is equipped with the latest advanced GOTONOVA® GOTO technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts available. Its database includes over 59,000 objects. The Go2Nova® Hand Controller is intuitive to use and its large 4-line LCD screen simplifies the process of setting telescopes and locating objects. The new LiteRoc tripod features a 1.75” upper leg section with a 1.5” diameter lower section (same as the old 2” tripod), resulting in a lighter tripod with stability similar to the earlier 2”. It also has improved leg cuffs and sockets for more rigidity and redesigned leg lock levers.
