About this product

The Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ5GT is essentially a smaller, lighter version of the highly successful AZ EQ6GT.

Works great with The SkyWatcher Wifi Dongle. 

In EQ mode, the AZ-EQ5GT is designed for either visual use or astro-imaging. In AZ mode, it is primarily intended for visual use and in this mode two telescopes can be mounted simultaneously in parallel.

Patented Skywatcher dual-encoder 'FreedomFind' technology allows the telescope to be moved manually in either axis outwardly the mount losing its positional information. This gives the user freedom, convenience and flexibility during observational sessions.
