OWL Astronomy Products
We have given each of the models of iOptron mountings its own web page. In addition, this current page lists some basic specifications. Most of the iOptron mountings also are available as complete systems with any of three different telescopes. All of these mountings use standard dove-tail mounts to attach to almost any telescope.
For an overview of the features of each series, we have a table below to Compare Features.
