    iOptron iEQ45 Pro Equatorial Mount with Tripod & Hard Case

    This iEQ45 Pro comes with a hard carry case that is custom-made to protect the mount.  If you know you'll want the case (and who wouldn't?), buying it this way saves you money!

    iOptron iEQ45 is next generation GoTo technology - not to mention built-in 32-bit GPS.  With a payload of 45 lbs balanced - it comes standard with a calibrated dark field illumination polar scope and a sturdy 2-inch stainless steel tripod.  It also fits both Vixen and Losmandy-type mounting plates.  It's lighter weight (only 25 lbs) makes it much easier to carry.
