TheSky-Watcher HEQ5 PRO Dual Saddle Go-ToMountrepresents the ultimate evolution of the EQ5 mount. With a mount head weight of 10 kg, this professional mount is ideal to be carried anywhere in search of dark skies and solar eclipses. The integrated bubble level and the adjustable tripod legs make the levelling easy, the azimuth and altitude axis can be finely adjusted for precise polar alignment. On top of that, the included polar scope included allows an extremely precise polar alignment that helps to drastically improve the quality of tracking, especially for astrophotography.
The exceptional SynScan Go-To system allows full control of both R.A. and Dec. axes with 9 slew speeds and 5 arcminutes pointing precision, allowing you to quickly and accurately locate objects across the night sky. The Go-To system can automatically slew the telescope on command toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has 42,900 memorised celestial objects for an amazing journey in the night sky. The Deep Sky Tour function suggests a list of the most interesting deep sky objects currently visible, so even the novice astronomer can easily observe faint objects at the touch of a button.
The HEQ5 Pro is designed for astrophotography featuring an auto-guide port and compatibility with computer control software. The 10kg payload capacity will handle telescopes of medium dimension such as 200mm reflectors or 150mm refractors.
