The company iOptron is known for its astronomical GoTo mounts. iOptron’s strength lies in its innovative designs and excellent levels of equipment at relatively low prices. The wide product offering ranges from the entry-level SmartEQ mount to the CEM120, which is ideal for observatories.
The SkyTracker and SkyGuide photographic mounts are especially popular. They are designed to track cameras with interchangeable lenses across the sky. The somewhat larger SkyGuide can even carry small refractors. Due to their small size, both models are ideal as travel mounts!
