iOptron SkyHunter GoTo Mount


Fifteen years after releasing the innovational CubeTM AZ/EQ GoTo mount, the SkyHunterTM takes the next step toward perfection. It is the lightest and most compact full function portable GoTo mount in iOptron’s exceptional history. Weighing in at only 1.3 kg (2.9 lbs) including the internal rechargeable battery, the SkyHunter is capable of supporting a 5 kg (11 lbs) payload in both equatorial and alt-azimuth modes.


NOTES: The telescope and iPolar accessory seen in some product images are not included. For mobile functionality (without a laptop), you may need to purchase software for your iOS or Android device. For example SkySafari 7 for iOS ranges in price from approx. $14 to $38 CDN. Also, an additional Vixen adapter plate will be needed (see related products below) to attach a camera directly to the mount. Please contact us if you have questions before ordering…
