Following up on the success of the iOptron CEM60 center balance equatorial mount, iOptron are excited to introduce the CEM70.

The CEM70 is the new standard bearer for equatorial mounts in the 70lb payload segment. Retaining the inherent properties of the center balance design, the CEM70 is a relatively compact medium payload mount that delivers what astronomers expect in an efficient accurate portable mount. With precise GOTO pointing and accurate tracking (PE <±5 arcsec) the CEM70 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) and an advanced cable management system for the mount  assures users the CEM70 is designed with their needs in mind.

The CEM70 includes the iPolarTM electronic polar scope, and a hard case.

(Tripod/Pier not included.)
