Product Description


ORION - SIRIUS EQ-G COMPUTERIZED EQUATORIAL MOUNT

The Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount is conveniently less hefty than the heavier Orion Atlas EQ-G mount, but it utilizes the same GoTo drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. The Orion Sirius EQ-G can support up to a 30-lb. load of equipment easily for all your visual astronomy or astrophotographic applications.

With its computerized GoTo system and hand controller, the Orion Sirius EQ-G provides a terrific platform for electronic acquisition and tracking of celestial objects. Select from among 42,900 objects in the GoTo database using the intuitive menus on the easy to use hand controller, or take a guided tour of the finest celestial showpieces. After a rather simple alignment procedure, the Sirius EQ-G GoTo Mount can take on hour after hour of astronomical adventures as it locates, then points the attached telescope to cosmic wonders. The internal dual-axis stepper motors of the Sirius Mount slew the attached telescope at speeds up to 3.4° per second for efficient stargazing sessions.

The Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount includes an illuminated polar-axis telescope, 8.3" dovetail mounting bar, and one 11-lb. counterweight. The tripod is remarkably sturdy, as evidenced by the 1.75"-diameter stainless steel legs and cast-metal spreader plate. The plate doubles as a convenient accessory tray, with holes for storing telescope eyepieces while out in the field.

Operation of the computerized GoTo system and tracking motors requires a 12-volt DC power source or AC-to-DC adapter (both sold separately). The Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount weighs 32 lbs., not including counterweight. Weighs 43 lbs. assembled, without a telescope attached
