<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Introducing iOptron's new compact next-generation center-balance equatorial mounts the CEM26 and CEM26EC. Like their predecessors the CEM26 is designed with portability in mind, weighing in at only 10 lbs it can support up to a 26lb payload an incredible 2.6 mount weight to payload ratio. The key to enable such ratios is the CEM design focuses the mount and payload weight directly on the center of the tripod rendering &ldquo;natural stability". Building on the legacy of earlier CEM models we have added features for convenience and functionality. A positive lock gear engagement system (easy to use even when wearing gloves), Built-in Wi-Fi enabling unparallel connectivity and recordable permanent periodic error correction (PPEC) to repeat optimal PEC training sessions (real time PEC on the CEM26EC). Regarding functionality the CEM26 and CEM26EC delivers precise pointing and accurate tracking (PE &lt;0.3 arcsec RMS on the EC model). The 212,000 object library ensures you'll never run out of targets to see or image. The CEM26 and CEM26EC set the new standard for compact equatorial mounts.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Features&nbsp;</span></p> <ul> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Unique design, center-balanced equatorial mount (CEM)&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Ideal for both visual observation and astrophotography&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Large easy to use quick-lock gear clutches&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Integrated iPolarTM electronic polar finder (optional visual polarscope available)&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Max payload of 26 lbs (11.8kg) with the mount weight of only 10 lbs (4.5kg)&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Precision stepper motor for precise GOTO and accurate tracking&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Go2Nova&reg; 8409 controller with advanced GOTONOVA GOTO technology&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">PEC +/- 10 arc-sec (CEM26), &lt;.3 arc-sec rms (CEM26EC)&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Permanent PEC (PPEC) CEM26, real time PEC (RPEC) CEM26EC&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Integrated ST-4 auto guiding port&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Built-in Wi-Fi&nbsp;</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Available with 1.5&rdquo; standard or 1.75" Lite Roc tripod</span></li> </ul>
