FAQ

Q:
Does this mount come with the handset for go-to and autotracking for photography?
A:
Unfortunately, the standard Saxon EQ5 Mount does not come with any Go-To or Auto-Tracking functionality. Upgrade kits are available but are generally fairly expensive and you are much better off buying a EQ5 Mount with Go-To Functionality out of the box. A good option would be to go for a Celestron CG-5 Mount (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/celestron-cg-5-computerized-mount.html). Same German EQ5 Mount but will Celestron's Nexstar Go-To functionality. Alternatively, if you were after a Telescope as a whole, we have a very good deal for a Celestron C8-SGT (http://www.ozscopes.com.au/celestron-advanced-series-c8-sgt-schmidt-cassegrain-telescope.html). This comes with the same Celestron EQ5 mount mentioned above but with a 8" Cassegrain tube included with the price as well.
