Grab N’ Go Star Gazing Rig


This is the iOptron Mini Tower which was further upgraded to the Mini Tower Turbo by Steve Forbes.  Its is very light and extremely accurate.    Since this mount can handle two telescopes simultaneously I usually mount the Mak Cass on the right side and an Explore Scientific 80mm APO on the left side.  I use a trio of Ethos eyepieces to improve the viewing.  As a grab and go its fast, accurate, easy to handle and very affordable.
