    Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ6 GOTO Mount With Steel Tripod

    Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ6 is a highly successful Mount from SkyWatcher. It is a hybrid mount with Alt-Azimuth capability for general terrestrial use and Equatorial capability for astrophotography use, also able to to carry heavy duty photographic equipments for professional shooting and video recording. Together with supplied SynScan handset with Dual AZ & EQ Firmware, it can automatically track up to 42,900+ Celestial object from its database.

    Freedom Find™
    SkyWatcher patented Freedom Find is a technology which allows telescope to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object, the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session. If the user wants to operate the mount with the SynScan hand control again, all that is needed to be done is to re-lock the clutches. This feature can be enabled or disabled on the SynScan hand controller.

    Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC)
    After a proper PEC training routine where data stored in the motor controller permanently, user can start PEC at any time to improve the tracking performance for short focal length astrophotography. A training process is not required in the next observing session (assuming that the polar alignment is always accurate), thus this is a Permanent PEC. A user can train the mount with manual guiding or auto-guiding.
