    SkyWatcher EQ5 Mount with Steel Tripod

    The Skywatcher EQ5 Mount delivers the precision and stability you need for serious stargazing. Utilizing only the highest quality materials and internal components, Skywatcher brings you a mount that is perfectly suited for telescopes in the small to medium weight category.

    Stable and Vibration Resistant Platform
    The premium steel tubes used in the tripod ensure that you get a sturdy platform for your imaging device. As long as you stay within the prescribed payload, you’ll get the best performance from this mount. The rigidity of the aluminum tubes not only provides stability but also dampen tiny vibrations from external sources. These tiny vibrations are enough to interfere with observations at high magnifications.
