More about the product

The Sky-Watcher EQ6 Pro (or NEQ6-Pro) GoTo mounts are practically quite similar to the basic version. Besides the different color the two serier differ in motors and also in the electronics.

GoTo Controller:

This model is equipped with the latest SynScan GoTo hand controller. The hand controller has a huge database of celestial objects and performs GoTo functions without a computer attached. The 42900 objects include all Messier, NGC, IC objects and many other deepsky catalogues plus double and variable stars.

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.


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.

Price/Value ratio

Pros

-A maga méret és teherbírási kategóriájában jelen pillanatban nincs vetélytársa. A hasonló márkásabb termékekért többszörös árat kell(ene) leszurkolnunk. -Úgy tapasztaltam az újabb példányokban elég tisztességes minőségű - kis PE hibájú - csigák vannak. -Úgy tapasztaltam a régről ismerős problémák (fémforgács, kosz a fogaskerekek között stb.) nagyobb odafigyelést kapnak. Remélem nem csak szerencsém volt :-)

Cons

-A pólustávcső kupakjából apránként kisebb-nagyobb darabok válnak le az ellendarab éles menete miatt. Innen már csak egy lépés, hogy a csapágyba kerüljön. Jó lenne erre valami \"gyári\" megoldást találni. -Komoly fotózási célokhoz szinte elengedhetetlen a szíjszett beépítése, esetleg a gyári csapágyak cseréje (további kiadás).

Summary

Egyelőre határozottan tetszik a mechanika, de ennek komoly anyagi vonzata van a vételáron felül: Csapágyak cseréje, szíjhajtás, bosszantó hibák javítása. Ez az első GOTO mechanikám, nagy boldogsággal tölt el, hogy velem ellentétben mindent megtalál az égen...
