Recognizing the growing demand for an accurate and stable, equatorial mount with the versatility to carry larger instruments and more complex imaging arrays, iOptron has created the CEM120.  It offers the benefits of their revolutionary "center balance" design: stability, accuracy, and smooth mechanical operation, while capable of carrying a payload up to 115lbs (52 kg).  The "center balance" design's natural stability is due to its focusing the mount along with payloads weight directly over the center of the pier or tripod.  The CEM120's performance is demonstrated by its low periodic tracking error of +/- 3.5 arc seconds and down to

The CEM120 will initially be available in two versions, the CEM120 and the CEM120EC (The EC version has high resolution encoders for real time nearly error free tracking).
