Accessories for iOptron GOTO
Mountings and Telescopes

OWL Services is now a dealer for iOptron of Woburn, MA. They have a VERY interesting series of GOTO mountings and telescopes. These are sturdy, very accurate, and very reasonable in price. Starting at just $242, these mountings provide a very inexpensive way to get into computer based astronomy. Although these mountings come with most everything you need to start, there are several recommended accessories that will help your observing.

Please note: With the exception of the SmartStar® E series, all iOptron GOTO mountings come with UPB cable to allow firmware upgrades. They also include AC adapters for use with standard 110VAC current. If any of these become lost or damaged, we can provide these. We decided not to list them because you already have them.
