About the iOptron MiniTower II GoTo Mount

The iOptron MiniTower II (MT2) is an extremely portable GoTo telescope mount with a weight capacity of 30 pounds. It has the same advanced SmartStar GoTo technology as the original - but with enhanced encoders and firmware. The MiniTower II hand controller offers a superb navigation experience with an 8 line LCD back-lit display, an over 120,000 object database and a USB port for easy connection with ASCOM compliant PC planetarium programs. With a typical GoTo accuracy of 1 arc minute and the GoToNova precision auto-tracking, the MiniTower II will consistently bring the celestial object of your choice to the center of the eyepiece and keep tracking for hours.
