We're excited to attend NEAF 2015 this weekend and especially to see all our friends (and new friends we've made this year)! Be sure to check our our new iEQ30 Pro and the new Tri-Pier, plus, a bunch of cool gadges like the StarFi and the smartphone eyepiece adaptor.

Photo of the Month

This month's photo is from Brian Gibson taken at Lora Bay Aurora. Ontario, Canada. He used the iOptron SkyTracker and an Olympus OM-D EM-1 with a 12-14mm f/2.8 PRO lens.


This month "pick your sale" on the top-selling ZEQ25 center-balanced equatorial mount.  That's right, purchase a ZEQ25 and choose either:
 1) a $50 instant rebate from your favorite iOptron dealer
 2) the new StarFi 
 3) or the new ZEQ mini extension pier
The innovative "Z" design mount puts the weight of the payload at the center of gravity allowing for greater natural stability and lighter mount weight. Click here to download a test report or see a video on the Z.

It's not a tripod... and it's not a pier.

It's the Tri-Pier!

Introducing a new concept in mount support.The iOptron Tri-Pier combines the strength and stableness of a pier with the levelling flexibility of a tripod. Holds up to 220 lbs (100 kg). The Tri-Pier fits the CEM60, iEQ45 Pro, iEQ30 Pro, MiniTower Pro, and the MiniTower II. It also fits other brand mounts with an adaptor plate. Suggested retail $598 USD. Ships May 2015 US and worldwide. 


*Shown with CEM60 mount not included  

WIFI for your iOptron mount is here!


Yes, now you can wirelessly connect to your iOptron mount via the new StarFi adaptor. You'll be able to control your mount with software like SkySafari right from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Or control your mount via ASCOM with your favourite planetarium software.
On sale now online or pick yours up at NEAF this weekend!
Suggested retail $89.
