NIGHT SKY AT THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON
For amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a high-precision computerised Go-To telescope mounting system for imaging or visual applications, the family of SynScan TM Pro Series mountings are the answer. All SynScan TM Pro Series models are premium-grade observing platforms which have been thoughtfully designed for ease of operation. With the user-friendly push-button hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes a walk in the park. The SynScan TM hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observation sessions.

Slow-motion control knobs allow for continuous manual tracking of celestial objects. The mount rests firmly on a large, adjustable aluminium tripod with accessory tray. A bubble level allows for quick and accurate levelling.

The mount features full 360º worm-gear tracking controls on both R.A. and DEC. axes. Dual metal setting circle dials allow quick location of target using celestial coordinates.
