Product Description

Sky-Watcher EQ6 R Pro Computerized GoTo Equatorial Mount

The SkyWatcher USA EQ6-R Pro was smartly designed for astrophotographers with features like a built in ST-4 Autoguider port and shutter release port, making this an  astrophotography powerhouse. Using the integrated RS232 port, you can control the telescope from your computer and take advantage of today’s most advanced astronomy software. With a weight capacity of 44 lbs, the Sky Watcher EQ6-R can handily support an optical tube, imaging accessories and camera.

The EQ6-R Pro uses Stepper motors with a 1.8° step angle and 64 micro steps driven for exceptionally quiet and accurate 1 arc second operation.  SkyWatcher's 42,000 object database is user friendly thanks to the included hand controller and can be easily connected to a computer for remote control with the included RS232 cable and port. SynScan controllers also include Periodic Error correction training so accuracy improves with use and can be configured in the field.

Sky-Watcher includes an illuminated polar finderscope to aid the polar alignment process. The finderscope features a circular grid reticle for the northern hemisphere, consistent with todays popular polar alignment apps. For astronomers in the southern hemisphere, the constellation Octans is built into the reticle as well. Even without a clear view of Polaris, the EQ Pro can be polar aligned using our SynScan hand controller. Simply choose one of the visible stars listed and use the latitude adjustment screws to center it in the eyepiece.

As customary with all Sky-Watcher products, an assortment of accessories are included with the EQ Pro mount. A retractable counterweight bar is supplied, allowing for easier transportation as well as two 11-lb counterweights are included to help balance any payload. The EQ Pro features a saddle compatible with both D and V style mounting plates, granting users the flexibility to utilize multiple optical tubes, even if the mounting plate is different.
