EQ6 SkyScan SUPER HEAVY-DUTY EQUATORIAL MOUNT

NEQ6 Pro SynScan SUPER HEAVY-DUTY EQUATORIAL MOUNT

For amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a precision computerized GOTO system, the EQ6 SynScan is your answer. The Sky-Watcher EQ6 (NEQ6) SynScan is designed with the novice user in mind. With the user friendly pushbutton hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 13,400 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions.

The EQ6 (NEQ6) SynScan also comes with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate:

  • Positioning Accuracy up to 1 arc minute. Accuracy enhanced by software collimation error (mount mechanical error) compensation.
  • Stepper motors with 1.8° step angle and 64 micro steps driven.
  • Slewing speed up to 3.4°/sec (800X).
  • AutoGuider Interface for astro-photography.
  • Guiding speed selectable from 0.25X, 0.50X, 0.75X, or 1X.
  • Object database containing complete M, NGC, and IC catalogues.
  • Built in Polarscope
  • Minimal vibration for steady long-exposure photography.

Please note that the product specification has been improved and now goes under the name NEQ6 PRO.
The differences are two fold:

1) A counterweight extension bar is included in the package – the mount is still supplied with 2 x counterweights.
2) The mount is now supplied with TWO saddle plates
A Sky-Watcher 45mm and 75mm (fitted as standard) . They are easily interchangeable and can be removed by loosening 3 x Allen screws.

Starsense Auto Align

StarSense for Skywatcher Goto Mounts
£365.00

Overview

  • Enables automatic alignment of your Skywatcher computerized telescope*
  • No need to identify or locate any star in the sky–StarSense automatically aligns your telescope, so you can begin observing in minutes
  • Aligns in 3 minutes or less
  • Provides advanced mount modeling—align on numerous stars throughout the sky for extremely precise GoTo pointing accuracy
  • StarSense hand controller included


Description

Become an instant astronomer, even if you’ve never used a telescope before, with the one-of-a-kind StarSense AutoAlign. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand control, and StarSense begins capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database. In about three minutes, it's gathered enough information to triangulate its position and align itself. Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more currently visible in the night sky.

How it Works

The self-alignment technology behind our award-winning SkyProdigy series is now available for all of Skywatcher's current computerized telescopes and backwards compatible with many older models as well. (See compatibility list below.)

A small digital camera takes the place of your finderscope and attaches using one of two provided mounting brackets. The included StarSense hand control, with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects, takes the place of your hand control. The camera automatically captures a series of images of the sky. StarSense identifies the stars in the images, matching them to its database. Once a positive match is confirmed, StarSense calculates the coordinates of the center of the captured image, thereby determining exactly where the telescope is pointed.

Before StarSense, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope’s eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with minimal user input. Just enter your time, date, and location and let StarSense do the rest!

Advanced Mount Modeling

Even the most advanced telescope users will love using StarSense AutoAlign. This affordable accessory replaces the expensive software usually used for advanced mount modeling.

With built-in mount modeling, you'll get superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. When your alignment needs to be perfect, add up to 10 additional calibration stars to achieve a new level of accuracy, great for locating objects in the camera’s field of view for astroimaging.

 


Synscan Wifi adapter for Skywatcher Goto Mounts

Synscan Wifi adapter for Skywatcher Goto Mounts
£60.00

The exciting SynScan Wi-Fi Adaptor Module is compatible with all of Sky-Watcher's Go-To mountings and telescopes, allowing convenient, wireless control with your smartphone or tablet using either the SynScan App or SynScan PRO App, which are available for free download from either the Google Play or App Store. Wireless control is also possible via ASCOM from a PC.
