Omegon 154mm astrograph with iOptron CEM26 LiteRoc

The 154/600mm astrograph on an iOptron CEM26 LiteRoc mount - the dream team for mobile astrophotography. With this fast f/4 astrograph, you can capture attractive celestial objects digitally with lightning speed. The CEM26 mount is transportable yet strong. For all beginners and experienced astrophotographer wishing to try their hand at mobile astrophotography.

Omegon f/4 astrograph - for unforgettable astronomy photos
Which other type of telescope can be used to create a beautiful image with so little effort? With Omegon astrographs this is easier than with 'ordinary' telescopes. Why? The answer is obvious - because an aperture ratio of f/4 means a big light output and consequently shorter exposure times. Immerse yourself in the world of deep sky photography. Admire faint galaxies or details in hydrogen nebulae. The Omegon astrograph sets a new benchmark for your astronomy photos.

The advantages in a nutshell

  • f/4 astrograph - a telescope with ultra-fast aperture ratio for short exposures
  • suitable to go on medium mountings due to its short overall length
  • wide field of view for extended objects - approx. 24mm is illuminated
  • 94% reflection parabolic main mirror for bright images
  • large secondary mirror - good illumination for DSLR cameras
  • robust 2" Crayford focuser with 1:10 reduction and 1.25" reducer
  • faster cool-down for getting started observing quicker - main mirror fan

Like its predecessor model CEM25P, the new CEM26 is designed for ease of use and portability.

iOptron's latest mount can carry up to 12kg of payload with a remarkably high weight to payload ratio of 2:6.

The key to this optimised ratio is the centre-balance equatorial mounts (CEM) design developed by iOptron, which directs the mount and payload weight directly to the centre of the tripod, resulting in a natural centre of gravity.

Building on the legacy of earlier CEM models, additional features have been added to the new CEM26 to maximise convenience and functionality.

It now has an integrated WiFi system and recordable periodic error correction (PEC).

In terms of functionality, the CEM26 delivers precise pointing and highly accurate tracking of objects.

The CEM26 sets the new standard for compact, medium-sized GoTo equatorial mounts.

The centre-balanced design mount puts the weight of the payload at the centre of gravity allowing for greater natural stability.

This is another major advantage in astrophotography!

Other features include an adjustable counterweight bar to prevent obstruction with the tripod when used very close to the horizon.

Polar aligning is quick and accessible all the time now since the integrated polarscope is not obstructed by the declination shaft any longer (this was the case with the CEM25, for example).

The CEM26 has again been equipped with the latest Go2Nova� technology, making it one of the most powerful and accurate GoTo mounts currently available on the market!

The GoTo software database includes over 212,000 objects. The Go2Nova� hand controller is intuitive to use and its large four-line LCD display makes it incredibly easy to find objects, even in complete darkness.

The CEM26 comes with the tried and tested stainless steel LiteRoc tripod and a sturdy aluminium carrying case.

An optical polarscope (iOptron AccuAlign) is also included in the scope of delivery.

All highlights at a glance:

  • Unique design, centre-balanced equatorial mount for maximum payload and minimum mount weight
  • Ideal for both visual observation and astrophotography
  • Low periodic error (< �10 arc seconds)
  • Payload capacity of up to 12kg with a mount-only weight of 4.5kg
