Description Technical Specs Support Documents
 
The iOptron® CEM40G mount is the next generation of center-balanced equatorial mounts with a built-in iGuider guiding camera. This mount is incredibly eye-pleasing, and its beauty is found in more than its appearance. The functionality of the mount is superb. Weighing in at only 17.4 lbs., the CEM40G can support a payload of up to 40lbs.! That's incredible!

Innovative iOptron Technology
Make way for an innovative mount! This mount has an integrated electronic polar finder scope known as the iPolar. This tool ensures the accurate alignment of a telescope, even when the pole star is obscured. There are large levers on the quick-lock drive engagement system; these large levers make it easy to snap the gears into place.

This iOptron CEM40G mount has a dual saddle that accommodates Losmandy and Vixen-style dovetail plates. The CEM40 also uses iOptron's ultra-quiet, low-power consumption stepper motor drive system, aiding the mount in providing precise tracking.

Computerized Mount Features
The iOptron CEM40 mount uses the Go2Nova® hand controller to navigate the night sky. This incredible technology helps observers find celestial objects with the aid of the mount's 212,000+ object database! For those looking for a telescope that has the capability of tracking and finding beautiful night sky objects, this mount is a must have tool.

With the included tripod, 11lbs counterweight, and the mount's computerized technology, observers are just an OTA away from a spectacular viewing experience!

( This mount uses #8027 counterweight.)

1 of 5 CEM 40 with iGuider November 11, 2023
Reviewer: from India  
Bought the ioptron CEM40 with lot of enthusiasm & hope. Sadly, its a poorly supported product and the Quality Control guys just don't seem to be bothered.
1. The Counter balance shaft was off axis and upon asking for a fix was told - "oh it really won't matter! Of COURSE It matters when you have a 10 KG load on top and the Counter balance weight is not divided equally....
2. Soon after that, (and perhaps as a result of that) the mount developed a BAD "Play" hence completely loosing the object of interest when tracking! As usual the response was - "Oh it won't matter"
