Want to get into Astrophotography and you already own a Telescope? This is the product for you! 

It takes a standard dovetail, found on nearly every product and brand, Celestron, Orion, Skywatcher + more slide directly in. This gives you a stable, tracking and computerized mount and astrophotography that's great for a beginner on a budget to get into the field. 

Sky-Watcher offers simple solutions for users who would like to attach their smaller telescope to a convenient computerized system but do not wish to deal with the weight of the HEQ5 or EQ6 mount. The EQ3 Pro mounts use the same Go-To system found in the HEQ5 and EQ6 Pros-- SynScan. It allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button.

The EQ3 SynScan mounts are the perfect instrument for novice visual observers to enjoy astronomy with minimal setup time and in-depth knowledge of the night sky.  For novice users, the user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to 42,900+ objects.
