Economical Mounts for Everyone

The MiniTower PRO
Handles Even More Capacity!
Payload: 33 lbs. and 10 lbs.

You’ve seen the MiniTower™…
Now you’ve got to go Pro.

This mount WILL handle
two scopes at one time!
See it in action utilizing two scopes!

Bigger! No doubt you’ve heard about the MiniTower™. Well, the MiniTower Pro™ has all the same, great technologies and features – just beefed up! So, you can still mount two scopes on -- but now with more pay load. You can still track objects-- only now the encoder resolution is six times finer. We’ve also added a two-inch stainless-steel tripod that is much taller for easier viewing with large scopes. So, go ahead and step up to the Pro!

Extremely Portable With all the standard components (excluding the tripod) packaged in an alloy metal case, the MiniTower ProTM can easily be carried around in a car trunk or as an airline luggage. The whole system takes only 10 minutes to assemble. This unlimited portability, combined with the internal GPS, gives amateur astronomers extreme flexibility in selecting an observing location.

Accurate GOTO and Tracking Equipped with the most advanced SmartStar® GOTO technology, MiniTower ProTM is one of the most powerful and accurate GOTO mounts. The standard 8401 hand controller offers the superb navigation experience with an 8 line LCD back-lit display, a 130,000 object database and a USB port for easy connection with ASCOM compliant PC planetarium programs. With a typical GOTO accuracy of 1 arc minute and the SmartStar® precision auto-tracking, the MiniTower ProTM will consistently bring the celestial object of your choice to the center of the eye-piece and keep tracking for hours.
