Description



The Skywatcher EQ5 GOTO Mount is an upgrade designed to expand the capabilities of the EQ5 Mount. It adds the same type of computerized features found on the heavier HEQ5 and EQ6 Pro mounts. It includes the proprietary SynScan GoTo system; the massive database of celestial object locations and automated alignment functions.

Once installed into the EQ5 mount, you only need to complete the alignment process and your good to go. Point your telescope to the different celestial objects stored in the database at the touch of a button.
