The iOptron AZ/EQ HAE29C-EC strain wave gear mount features light weight and a high payload. This little titan will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at 8 lbs with a payload capability 29.7lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE29C-EC brings this vision to reality.

The mount also features a high precision RA axis encoder that delivers incredible tracking accuracy, enough that many will choose to image without guiding.

Utilizing state of the art strain wave gear technology for the both RA and DEC movement, the HAE29C-EC delivers unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodized all metal CNC machined body is not only appealing to the eye, it’s a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years to come. Unique features such as an electronic friction brake and power down memory allow the mount safely stop and resume a GoTo slew or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (no need to realign and start from the beginning).

The HAE29C-EC dual SWG Alt-az/Eq mount now has an internal main board and no longer requires a hand controller. The mount has USB ports on both the mount base and saddle that connect directly to the main board for mount control and firmware upgrade. It also features a built-in Wi-Fi for connection.

An HAE29C-EC mount can be controlled by a computer, either via ASCOM/Commander for a Windows PC or a third party INDI driver for a MacOS software; a SmartPhone/Tablet via iOptron Commander Lite or an App like SkySafari; or a Raspberry Pi device via INDI driver.
