Do you need a telescope to take great Astrophotos? 

Kelly Beatty (Senior Contributing Editor at Sky & Telescope magazine) discusses astrophotography on the Weather Channel.
See how the iOptron SkyTracker is a simple way to take great photos of the night sky! Click here to watch the TV segment.

New Mount Coming!

The new CEM60 is wrapping up final testings and is being prepped for shipping from the factory. The CEM60 is producing excellent results on the field -- we'll let others share what they've found :-) . AND... we also have the CEM60-EC with high-performance encoders (shown on right with red metallic knobs) -- for those of you that need high-octane!

Meet us in April...

The Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in April, is one of the largest astronomy shows in the US. We'll be there with our new CEM60, along with our top-selling ZEQ25, SkyTracker camera mounts, and more. So, if you're in the New York area-- please stop by -- we'd love to meet you!

Photographing the Night Sky
The ZEQ25 makes it easy to take beautiful photos of the sky. This photo (taken by Chris Levitan) is a great example of using the ZEQ25 EQ mount. Chris captured this shot with "ten minutes... no problem."
