AZ-EQ6-goto head with SynScan GoTo controller (without counterweight, without tripod)

More about the product

The AZ-EQ6GT is a dual purpose, fully functional computerised heavy-duty Go-To/Tracking astronomical mount in both Alt-Azimuth (AZ) and Equatorial (EQ) modes.

Supplied with a Synscan handset with dual AZ/EQ firmware, it can automatically find and track over 42,900 celestial objects from its database.

In EQ mode, the AZ-EQ6GT is designed for either visual use or precise astro-imaging. In AZ mode, it is primarily intended for visual use, and in this mode, two telescopes can be mounted simultaneously in parallel.

A great feature of the AZ-EQ6GT is the patented dual-encoder technology. This allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis without the mount losing its positional information. This gives the user enormous freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.

It is equipped with belt drive system, what means the tracking is smoother and it has much less backlash than the previous model had. Ideal for serious astrophotographers!

The mount provides a number of other useful functions, for example the "guided tour" helps to find and observe all interesting objects currently visible. The hand controller also helps to perform the polar alignment, can be used to check power voltage and temperature as well.

When doing astrophotography, the backlash compensation and the adjustable autoguiding speed helps a lot, and also the PEC functionality.

The hand controller firmware can be upgraded from the Internet. Powered by 12V DC.
