HEQ-5 mount with SynTrek controller (GoTo upgrade with SynScan hand controller is possible)

More about the product

The Sky-Watcher HEQ5 SynTrek and Pro GoTo mounts are practically identical to HEQ5 basic version. The difference is the color and the installed motors and electronics.

SynTrek:

Equipped with stepper motors that can provide 800x sideral speed (3.4 degrees/sec) using the hand controller or a planetarium program running on the attached PC. The 1/64 microstepping provides much smoother tracking and smaller backlash. An autoguider port is also included (standard ST4). The correction speed can be adjusted between 0.5x and 800x.

This mount does not have GoTo functionality, but can be interconnected with a PC thus with an application likeUrsa Minor Pro the mount can work as a fully functional GoTo mount. Also the hand controller can be upgraded to SynScan (GOTO) hand controller  which contains GoTo functionality as well.

Features:
- solar, lunar, and sideral tracking speeds
- slow motion control on both axes, 4x, 8x, 32x, 64x
- fast motion up to 800x speed
- guiding speed adjustable between 0.25x - 1x
- directions can be swapped
- power saving mode
- can be used on both northern and southern hemispheres


For the GoTo version we highly recommend the Skywatcher Wi-Fi unit (SynScanWifi), with which you can control your telescope via smartphone or tablet. Just plug the Wi-Fi unit into the hand controller slot and download the free App (Android or iOS) - it is ready to use.

Pros

Stabil. Azóta nincs olyan a 200/800 Newtonnal készült kép amit bemozdulás miatt kellett volna kidobni. A dokumentáció szerinti 2A-es táp helyett én egy 2.5A-essel használom, kiválóan megy. A beépített megvilágított pólustávcső nagyon hasznos. Könnyen, finoman lehet pólusra pozícionálni (mondjuk az emelő kivételével, az nehezen mozdul).

Cons

Több apró de nagyon bosszantó apróság: Az ellensúlyok csavarjai nagyon gyenge minőségűek, az egyik a kezemben szétmállott még az első használat előtt. Ha nem lett volna otthon másik régi, nem tudtam volna használni. A két ellensúly egy rendesen felszerelt 200/800 Quattrót (kereső távcső + vezető távcső + egy könnyű fényképezőgép) nem tud kiegyensúlyozni, kell még egy súly. A láb alján levő gumi nagyon hamar eltkopik, marad az alatta levő fém. Gyors pozícionáláskor nagyon repedt fazék hanggal indul. Utána már jó a motorhang. A kézi finommozgaró karok csatlakozását fedő gumi dugók könnyen kiesnek, kitelepüléskor eltűnhetnek.

Summary

A bosszantó apró hibákhoz képest a funkcióját, a cső mozgatását nagyon jól végzi. Nekem nagyon bevált. Örülök, hogy rászántam azt a nem kevés pénzt, amibe kerül. Egy EQ5 PRO-nál sokkal hasznosabb, mint amennyivel drágább. Amíg el nem romlik, nem a mechanika lesz a fényképezés akadálya.
