iOptron's Capable Cube 
Introducing iOptron® SmartStar® CubeTM-A R80 entry level GOTO telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 80 mm lens is crafted with a low dispersion glass that is ground and polished to exact specifications. The precision design is excellent for viewing bright stars, planets and their moons, as well as for bird watching and other land objects. Two eye pieces come standard to allow for flexibility in viewing either a wider field or a single focused object.
 
iOptron® CubeTM-A Mount :
The Cube with Alt-Azimuth & German Equatorial Modes
The SmartStar® CubeTM-A mount comes with our proprietary Grab 'N Go Alt-Azimuth Mount, a.k.a. The Cube, rated 4-star by Sky and Telescope Magazine. This compact mount design is one of the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit which is universally compatible with all telescopes using a Vixen-type dovetail connection. The mount can be level for Alt-Azimuth or locked into position for German Equatorial. The Go2Nova® hand controller on each Cube mount is easy to use with menus for planets, stars, nebulas, and constellations. And at only 12 lbs. you can take it anywhere and get accurate tracking! It also has a large LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition (so you don’t have to keep scrolling to read the screen). The controller is designed so you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go. The revolutionary GOTONOVA® computerized control system is one of the most technologically advanced automated tracking system available on the market today. There are no "dead spots" -- so you can point your telescope to anywhere above the horizon, whereas, other mounts block the telescope tube at certain points of rotation. This mount can be operated by 8 AA battery or a external AC/DC power adapter, makes it an idea travel mount.
 
Compatible with most tubes on the market
Telescopes and cameras with Vixen-type dovetail connection and a weight up to 7 lbs. (including accessories) are compatible with the CubeTM-A GOTO mount. (If you do not have a dovetail connection -- attach your OTA using mounting rings and dovetail available at your local telescope store or the OTA manufacturer). Contact iOptron for expert advice on compatibility issues.
 
GOTONOVA® computerized control system
The revolutionary GOTONOVA® computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated goto and tracking system available on the market today. With its large celestial object database, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters-- not to mention the planets, sun and moon-- you’ll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.
 
The most easy to understand controller on the market
The Go2Nova® 8401 hand controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition. Using the easy-to-use hand controller and its large LCD screen, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.
 
32-Channel GPS Module
All A-series telescope mounts come standard with a built-in 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the Go2Nova® Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the Go2Nova® computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.
 
Serial Port
The Go2Nova® 8408 hand controller (HC) is the standard controllers that used for a Cube-II mount. It has a 4 line, 21 character large LCD screen, function keys, direction keys and number keys on the front; a and a HBX port (6-pin) and a serial port (4-pin) at the bottom.
 
Simply a better tripod
Made of 1.25-inch heavy-duty stainless steel, the Cube tripod is sturdy yet light weight, and gives the user unparalleled stability during operation. Solid construction joints keep your mount locked securely. A built-in wedge will allow you to convert the mount from an AA mount to a EQ one in minutes.
