Introducing the HEM27, iOptron's revolutionary hybrid harmonic drive mount. This light weight, high payload tiny titan will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at 8.15lbs with a payload capability 29.74lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron's multi decade experience creating precision mounts, the HEM27 brings this vision to reality.

Utilizing state of the art harmonic drive technology for the RA movement in tandem with backlash-free DEC worm/belt drive design, the HEM27 delivers unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodized all metal CNC machined body is not only appealing to the eye, its a rugged platform that will perform at the highest level for many years to come. Unique features such as an electronic friction break and power down memory allow the mount safely stop and resume a GoTo slew or continue tracking even after an abrupt power loss (No need to realign and start from the beginning).

An HEM27 mount can be controlled by a computer, either via ASCOM/Commander for a Windows PC or a third party INDI driver for a MacOS software; a SmartPhone/Tablet via iOptron Commander Lite or an App like SkySafari; or a Raspberry Pi device via INDI driver.

Includes:

  • iPolar electronic polar scope for easy and accurate polar alignment
  • Optional #8061 Carbon Fibre tripod height adjustable to 535 - 935 mm (21"- 36.8")
