Product Description

Introducing the new members of iOptron strain wave gear mount family - AZ/EQ dual mount HAE43 and HAE43EC!

These light weight, compact, medium payload titans will deliver an astronomy experience like never before. Imagine a mount head weighing in at 12lbs with a payload capability 43lbs, without needing a cumbersome counterweight or shaft. Applying iOptron’s multi-decade experience creating precision mounts, the HAE43 brings this vision to reality.

Utilizing state of the art strain wave gear technology for the both RA and DEC movement, the HAE43s deliver unparalleled weight to payload efficiency. Its black anodized all metal CNC machined body is not only appealing to the eye, it’s 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).

A HAE43 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.

The HAE43EC features a high precision RA axis encoder that delivers incredible tracking accuracy, enough that many will choose to image “sans” guiding.

Note: **HAE43EC Only** Indicates that only the HA439EC model (and not the HAE43 model) includes these features.


Keeping pace with the current rapidly developing technology environment the iOptron HAE29, HAE29EC, HAE43 and HAE43EC SWG mounts have added new "B" iMate versions. iMate model mounts feature a powerful 64-bit ARM based on-board computer with Wi-Fi, preloaded KStars planetarium software, Ekos control and automation tool with INDI drivers. This hardware-software combination will support the use of most current and future devices allowing the user choice of brand and model (cameras, focusers, filter wheels, etc.). With 32 GB eMMC storage along with a slot for an up to 64 GB TF (micro SD) memory, the iMate has the ability to control and capture an entire automated imaging session. The iMate is cross-platform; use it with Windows, IOS, Linux, Android etc. All HAE iMate dual SWG Alt-az/ Eq mounts now have an internal main board and no longer requires a handset for use.
