About the iOptron 70e

The iOptron Astroboy 70e Portable Telescope is easy to use and easy to carry. Just click and it finds stars for you. Simply select a star or planet and the built-in computer moves the telescope for you. Plus, it stays on target as the earth rotates. Functions in both celestial and land modes for watching stars, birds, or landscapes. Take it with you camping, school, anywhere. It sits on a desk or can be attached to a tripod.

The Astroboy refractor telescope comes with Alt-Azimuth Mount. This compact mount design is probably the most functional and flexible unit on the market. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders, which provides accurate GoTo and tracking. The proprietary GoToNova technology ensures there are no "dead spots" - so you can point your telescope to anywhere above the horizon. With an optional DC adaptor, you can plug your telescope mount into your car if you're camping or at any remote location.
