Sky-Watcher EQ6-R PRO SYNSCAN – A NEW LEGEND IS BORN!

The new Sky-Watcher EQ6-R PRO Synscan Computerised Go-To mounting is an exciting evolutionary progression of the continuing legend that is the EQ6 PRO. The modern optimised design of the EQ6-R PRO incorporates features that serious imagers will immediately appreciate, such as;

  • Increased Payload capacity of 20kg for Astro-Photography
  • Synchronous Belt Driven, resulting in minimal backlash – Even quieter, smoother operation and better results when guiding. Higher Torque.
  • Superior Latitude adjustment controls with greater range of latitudes possible
  • Built-in SNAP camera control port
  • PPEC worm gear and worm periodic error correction function (avoids having to constantly re-train)
  • Built-in carrying handle for convenient transportation

The supplied computerised Synscan™ hand control allows you to control the mount to point your telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to 42,000+ night sky objects from it’s extensive database.
