HAE69 mounts are now available without the iMate (on-board computer).

These lightweight, compact, medium payload titans will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at less than 20 lbs with a payload capability 69 lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE69 makes this vision possible.

Utilizing state-of-the-art strain wave gear technology for both RA and DEC movement, the HAE69s deliver unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodized, all metal CNC machined body is appealing to the eye and is a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years to come. Unique features include an electronic friction brake allows the mount to stop safely during a planned or unplanned power interruption.

HAE69C dual SWG Alt-az/ Eq mounts now have an internal main board and no longer requires use with a handset. 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.

The optional 8411 Go2Nova® handset with OLED will provide a better user experiences, especially at extreme temperatures.

The HAE69C EC features a high precision RA axis encoder that delivers incredible tracking accuracy, enough that many will choose to image “sans” guiding.
