Does it hinder performance?

I have no idea!  I didn’t know about this.  I quoted the poster before me.

IOptron have contacted us. The new CEM70 is closer to release than we thought. 
It appears the CEM60 will be discontinued 🙁 
The CEM70 will be added to our website later today. 

HTH

Any update FLO on this being added to your website?

Sorry. I will finish the product listing tomorrow. Sales of astronomy equipment during the lockdown are at record levels. Higher even than Christmas! So we are all working overtime in dispatch and on the helpdesk ☕☕☕☕☕

I admire your persistence Richard 👍😊

Looking at coming in around 2.3k for the basic version and 2.6k for the guide / usb3 version.

I’ll be interested to see first reports of it performance.

In stock:

They do not have stock. They are only listing it. Though I guess that is one step further than us at the moment... 

We have several of both CEM70 models on order.

We will post an update as soon as we know they have been released from the factory. 

HTH,

I have nothing against AltairAstro whatsoever but all my equipment, shopping experiences, help, support, communication and guidance has been exceptional from FLO, so they will always have my my custom.

Thanks Neil, it’s a long story but I’ve been in preference for an updated mount to become available with usb3, the fact that it has a built in guider and comes with WiFi on the the G model makes it even more appealing. I too am looking forward to some initial reports especially regarding the I guider .

Personally I didn't need or want Wi-Fi, usb3 or a 120mm built in guidescope so can't see the point of paying £650 more for the basic model than what a cem 60 is..

Maybe 10lb extra payload, 5mm bigger gears but less teeth and in black  warrents the extra £650..

Think they got it wrong

Both the new iOptron CEM70 models will be in stock at our warehouse within a week 🙂 

I really must add it to our website... 😳

Very interesting, I'd certainly be interested if it'll take a celestron 11xlt. Be looking for a new mount in a few month's time.

I’m a bit disappointed that IOptron only saw fit to put USB 3.0 on the more expensive G model, it’s a lot of extra cash to pay for the G model if you only wanted USB 3.0, extra, I think they may have messed up here big time.... ☹️
