Centre-Balanced Equatorial Mount
The iOptron Corporation launched the CEM60 (standard) and CEM60-EC (high precision encoder) centre-balanced equatorial mount in the Spring of 2014. Even though the mount was brand new, and therefore bound to be susceptible to teething troubles, I decided to become an early adopter and went ahead and ordered a CEM60-EC from the first production run.
Because the mount was so new real world user reviews were scare at the time so I decided to record my thoughts in the hope that they would be useful to other potential purchasers. The mount is now well established but I have left my comments on this website in case they are useful to others.
My comments are in three parts:
