iOptron introduces the AZ Mount Pro ($1,299), which incorporates its newest "level and go" alignment setup. Simply level the mount using the built-in level indicator, turn on the power, and the AZ Mount Pro does the rest. The mount can be controlled using iOptron's popular Go2Nova hand controller, with a robust database of more than 212,000 objects, and it also includes build-in WiFi, allowing you to connect to your smart device running ASCOM-compliant planetarium apps. The AZ Mount Pro comes with a stainless steel tripod with 3-point leveling adjustments. It can support a scope of up to 33 pounds plus the included 10-pound counterweight, and its 6-inch dual-dovetail saddle accepts any Vixen- or Losmandy-style dovetail mounting plate.
