Introducing iOptron SmartStar Cube-G N114 Newtonian telescope system. Designed with the latest technology the 114 mm mirror is crafted with aluminum coated mirrors and exacting alignment.

Compatible with most tubes on the market
Telescopes and cameras with Vixen-type dovetail connection and a weight up to 7 lbs. (including accessories) are compatible with the Cube GOTO Altazimuth Mount. (If you do not have a dovetail connection -- attach your OTA using mounting rings and dovetail available at your local telescope store or the OTA manufacturer). Contact iOptron for expert advice on compatibility issues.

GOTONOVA® computerized control system
The revolutionary GOTONOVA computerized control system is by far the most technologically advanced automated goto and tracking system available on the market today. With its large celestial object database, including all of the well-known galaxies, nebulae, star clusters-- not to mention the planets, sun and moon-- you’ll be able to enjoy star gazing with the simple push of a button. Both axis motors are built into a small single unit with optical encoders that provide accurate GOTO and tracking. The control system also allows you to slew the telescope at different drive speeds, keeping the object within the telescope's viewfinder for as long as you wish.

The most easy to understand controller on the market
The Go2Nova 8402G hand controller is much easier to use than other similar products. The hand controller is more intuitive with menu categories better organized. It also has the largest LCD screen with more lines of content compared with the competition. Using the easy-to-use hand controller and its large LCD screen, you can easily set up your telescope and select where you want to go.

32-Channel GPS Module
All G-series telescope mounts come standard with a built-in 32-channel GPS module for fully automated operation and alignment. Simply turn on the Go2Nova Controller and the GPS module will automatically synchronize your telescope location and time with the Go2Nova computerized control system. View celestial objects without having to manually punch in the date, time, latitude or longitude.

USB Port
The 8402 hand controller comes with a USB port that tremendously expands the functionalities of the already powerful system. With the USB2COM driver installed, the USB port works as an RS232 serial port. It supports firmware upgrades and computer control.
