About this product

The Sky-Watcher EQ3 Upgrade Kit for GOTO upgrades the standard (non-PRO) mountings to a computerised GO-TO model.

The kit consists of a V.3 SynScan Flash Upgradeable GO-TO handset, two Stepper Motors for DEC and R.A. Drives, a Replacement Control Panel / Motor Board, Hand Control Cable, Cable Clamp and Hand Control Holder (12v Power Supply required).


This upgrade would  transform the EQ3 in a computerised system equipped with the SynScan. Once the telescope is aligned, the go-to system allows to slew the telescope toward planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, clusters and much more. The SynScan has in memory 42,900 celestial objects for an amazing  journey in the night sky.
