 Skywatcher EQ5 PRO SynScan


Sky-Watcher offers simple solutions for users who would like to attach their smaller telescope to a convenient computerized system but do not wish to deal with the weight of the HEQ5 or EQ6 mount.

The EQ5 Pro mounts use the same Go-To system found in the HEQ5 and EQ6 Pros - SynScan. It allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies with a touch of few buttons.

The EQ5 SynScan mounts are the perfect instrument for novice visual observers to enjoy astronomy with minimal setup time and in-depth knowledge of the night sky.  For novice users, the user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to 42900+ objects.
