<div class="ov-wrapper js-overview-desc" style="color: #595959; font-size: 12px; font-family: OpenSans, Arial, sans-serif;"> <div class="ov-desc" style="color: #464646; font-size: 16px; font-family: inherit;"> <p class="ov-desc-paragraph" style="font-size: 18px; font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="font-size: 18px; font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">View the Sun, Moon, planets, and more with&nbsp;<span style="font-family: inherit;">iOptron</span>'s&nbsp;<span style="font-family: inherit;">Solar 60 60mm f/6 Achro Refractor GoTo GPS Telescope</span>. This complete day and nighttime viewing rig comes with a highly-portable achromatic OTA, a removable white-light solar filter,&nbsp;an adjustable-height aluminum tripod, and a motorized computer-controlled mount with an integrated GPS module that eliminates the need to manually enter the date, time, latitude, or longitude.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 11pt;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">The Cosmic Orange Cube-G GoTo Alt-Az Mount is a functional, flexible, motorized, and computer-controlled unit that is ideal for most star gazing duties, yet sports a compact design that measures a mere 8x5x5" and weighs just 3-pounds. The dual-axis servomotors are built into a small single unit that is compatible with all telescope OTAs with a Vixen-style dovetail plate up to 7-pounds including accessories. The unique design eliminates "dead spots," enabling you to point your telescope to any point above the horizon without the risk of blocking the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount comes with a 110 VAC adapter to power it if you're near civilization, but if you're heading off the grid it can run on eight user-supplied AA batteries.</span></p> <p style="font-family: inherit;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">Included with the mount is the GoToNova 8405 computer controller. This handheld unit features a 14000+ object database with 256 user-defined objects for your favorite celestial or terrestrial bodies. The easy-to-use menu-driven system displays on a 4-line, 21-character, back-lit screen. This fully GoTo-capable unit has automatic tracking for fast moving near-space objects such as the sun, moon, and planets, and slower moving deep-sky objects like nebulae, and galaxies. For set-up or manual use, it has five slew speeds starting at 2x and going up to 4&deg;/second. The GoToNova controller is powered by the mount to make use easier and simple while reducing the unit's weight.</span></p> </div> </div> <div class="sectionHeaders js-hiddenFeatures" style="color: #595959;
