Skywatcher EQ6-R Belt Driven Equatorial Mount

$2,975.00

The Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Belt Driven Equatorial Mount is the result of years of improvement for a better tracking and reduced backlash in the EQ6 design. The new transmission belts between the motors and worm gears limit the backlash for a superior guiding accuracy. The integrated bubble level and the adjustable tripod legs make the levelling easy, the azimuth and altitude axis can be fine adjusted for a precise polar alignment. On top of that, the included polar scope allows an extremely precise alignment that helps to drastically improve the quality of tracking for astrophotography.

The new features of the EQ6-R are:
  • Transmission belt
  • Heavy duty knobs for azimuth and altitude adjustment
  • Handle on the right ascension axis
  • Wider latitude range (5°-65°)
The exceptional SynScan Go-To system allows full control of both R.A. and Dec. axes with 9 slew speeds and 5 arcminute pointing precision, allowing you to quickly and accurately locate objects across the night sky. The Go-To system can automatically slew the telescope on command toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has 42,900 memorised celestial objects for an amazing journey in the night sky. The Deep Sky Tour function suggests a list of the most interesting deep sky objects currently visible, so even the novice astronomer can easily observe faint objects at the touch of a button.

The EQ6-R is equipped with a SNAP port for controlling the camera shutter release. Working with the SynScan hand control’s “Camera Control” function, a user can take batch exposures in up to 8 groups of “Exposure-time & Frames”.
