iOptron Telescopes

iOptron telescopes and mounts occupy one of the hottest segments of the telescope market—where the worlds of photography and astronomy collide. Founded in 2007, just as the DSLR camera was exploding onto the astrophotography scene, iOptron offers innovative solutions for amateur astronomers and photography buffs alike.

The iOptron SmartStar telescope has been a mainstay of the entry level telescope market since it was introduced at the company’s inception. This simple, lightweight, and easy to use tracking mount pairs perfectly with compact refractor and Cassegrain optical tubes for a complete grab-and-go telescope kit perfect for newbies of all ages.

Nighttime landscape and wide field Milky Way photography has made its way out of the astronomy niche and become a favorite subject of skilled professional and semi-professional photographers. iOptron’s SkyTracker camera mount allows these artists and hobbyists to capture stunning scenes without streaky star trails ruining the shot. This simple device polar aligns almost any camera with the night sky in just a few simple steps—even if the user isn’t familiar with astronomy or telescopes. You’ll see this clever device featured on your favorite photography blogs.

iOptron’s line of telescope mounts—expanded in recent years—has gained standing among visual observers and serious astrophotographers. For weekend camping, the MiniTower offers compact GoTo telescope tracking that won’t take up the entire trunk of your car. Meanwhile iOptron’s unique Z-shaped German equatorial mounts offer a stable platform for long exposure imaging and precision performance.
