Introducing the AZ Mount Pro featuring "level and go" intuitive GOTO setup.

We call it "level and go", the term used to describe iOptron new AZ Mount Pro's simple set up routing. Using its built-in precision level indicator, the operator simply levels the mount and turns on the power; this capable computerized alt-azimuth telescope mount takes it from there. Utilizing the on board 32 channel GPS receiver and built-in position and angular detection sensors; the AZ mount Pro calculates its global position as well as the telescope orientation. Automatically the mount slews the instrument to an easily identifiable bright object in the night sky. The user need only confirm a bright object is in the center of the view, to activate tracking and GOTO functionality.

Functional Review March 14, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Kelley from Somewhere in the USA at night  
One star alignment on Sirius
Goto Orion
Goto Rigel
Goto Moon
All nicely centered. I had to stop because it was getting late. Orion is west of the local meridian by the time it gets dark enough for viewing.
The mount is easy to set up and use. The keypad works well. I look forward to the next good viewing night. I'm hoping for this Saturday.

Az Mount Pro/Mini Pier March 1, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Kelley from Somewhere in the USA  
The mechanicals:
Hefty, well made little chunk of equipment.
The Mini Pier took a bit of debugging to mount on the tripod formerly used for my iEQ45, but eventually worked out well. I guess written instructions would present some difficulty due to the many possible combinations of mounts, tripods, etc.

The only minus is the screws provided for the AZ MOunt Pro. The just aren't the proper screw to use for leveling the mount. Neither end will fit properly with the base of the mount. The mount could slip and have some unpleasant results.

Star knobs have to be ordered separately. If a set of star knobs were provided it would put a real polish on the experience of acquiring an AZ Mount Pro or acquiring a Mini Pier for the AZ Mount Pro.

Functional review to follow after the first clear night or a partial moon.
:)
