Skywatcher EQ6-R Pro SynScan Computerized Go-To Equatorial Mount:
Skywatcher EQ6-R Pro SynScan Computerized Mount uses the latest precision belt driven synchronous motors in both axis for smooth quiet slewing at over 4-degrees a second. These high torque motors provide superior guiding and tracking, perfect for serious astrophotography. Belt drive technology not only means quiet, smooth operation but significantly reduces backlash associated with geared systems. The dual fit dovetail makes this mount compatible with both Synta / Vixen and Losmandy type bars allowing virtually any brand of optical tube to fit securely.

The SkyWatcher SynScan handset has an easy to use menu system yet enough advanced features to satisfy the most serious users with PPEC worm gear and worm periodic error correction function as well as the vast 42000 object database with accurate GoTo function. The built in illuminated polar alignment scope means polar alignment is accurately achieved without having to purchase a separate accessory.

Ergonomic features of the SkyWatcher EQ6-R pro include a convenient carry handle to help moving the head around as well as mounting it to the 2" diameter stainless steel tripod (included). The adjusters for latitude have a greater range and along with the other manual controls are all a large diameter and easy to grip even with gloved hands.
