Imaging at Jaonneause Bay, Guernsey with iOptron

Description

I have posted these to show the iOptron CEM25EC mount in use. Here we had it set up with two mid-weight DSLR's on ball mounts for wide field imaging. It is a great lightweight mount to carry to semi-remote locations.

With the mounts optical encoders and closed loop PPEC combined with short focal length setups unguided tracking of 10-15 minutes is possible.

This set up shows the Polemaster camera which makes polar alignment easy and very accurate.

All-in-all if you need to walk a few hundred metres away from a car and retain all the advantages of a GOTO equatorial mount I can highly recommend this one.
