    Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Pro Equatorial Mount


    We are happy to announce the official release of Sky-Watcher’s newest German Equatorial Mount – the Sky-Watcher EQ6R Pro with SynScan controller.
    Improving on the solid foundation of the venerable NEQ6, this mount is packed with features making it ideal for serious visual or astrophotography applications.

    • NEW belt drives significantly reduce backlash for improved guiding performance.
    • NEW improved latitude adjustment and scale for easier polar alignment.
    • NEW body design and carry handle for improved portability and set-up.
    • NEW RJ45 SynScan connector plug (confirmed compatible with Shoestring USB2EQ5 cable)
    • NEW Bezel screw fit power connector for stable power supply
    • Improved dual saddle accepts both Vixen plates (45mm) and Losmandy plates (75mm)


    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.
