Product Description & Reviews
The EQ6-R builds upon the legacy of Sky-Watcher’s popular EQ6 mount. delivering the next evolution of the EQ6 family with a platform for better visual and photographic utilization. Improved latitude adjustment, innovative carry handle, accurate belt-driven motors and a built-in DSLR triggering system brings the EQ6-R into the modern age. Perfect for PhotographyThe EQ6-R boasts a number of features to aid astrophotographers. The built in ST-4 Autoguider port turns this mount into an astrophotography powerhouse, allowing you to utilize most of today’s best autoguiders. Integrated USB-B port allows for direct connection to PC via user supplied USB-B cable. With a weight capacity of 44 pounds, the EQ6-R can handily support an optical tube, imaging accessories and camera.Silent, Precise SlewingThe EQ6-R Pro uses 64 microstep driven stepper motors. Stepper motors are quieter than servo motors, providing precise accuracy without the annoying sound of grinding gears. 42,000 Object DatabaseUsing our proprietary SynScan hand controller, the EQ6-R Pro provides a user-friendly interface with a 42,000 object database, including complete Messier, NGC, IC and SAO catalogs. The hand controller can also connect to a computer using a USB-B cable, enabling computer control with most astronomy programs. For the astrophotographers looking to reduce Periodic Error, the SynScan hand controller has built-in PEC training that can be configured while in the field!Flexible Polar AlignmentSky-Watcher includes an illuminated polar finderscope to aid the polar alignment process. The polar scope reticle features a circular grid for the northern hemisphere, consistent with today’s 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 EQ6-R 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.Bundle of AccessoriesAs customary with most Sky-Watcher products, an assortment of accessories are included with the EQ6-R Pro mount. A retractable counterweight bar is built-in, providing easier transportation and storage, as well as two 11 pound counterweights to virtually balance any payload. The EQ6-R Pro features a saddle compatible with both D- and V-style mounting plates, giving you the flexibility to use optical tubes, even if the mounting plate is different.
