Sky-Watcher EQ6R Pro German Equatorial Mount
with SynScan GoTo Hand Controller



With a weight capacity of 44 pounds, the beefy and thoughtfully designed Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Pro Computerized Equatorial Mount is just the thing for amateur astronomers and Astro-imagers who use all but the largest of telescope optical tube assemblies.

The Skywatcher EQ6R Pro Mount has a belt drive system and stepper motors for accuracy in finding and tracking celestial objects, and Skywatcher’s tried-and-true SynScan hand controller offers up a 42,900 object database, special tours of the night sky, permanent periodic error correction, backlash compensation, the ability to set slewing limits, park, and polar alignment assist via the built-in illuminated polar scope. The EQ6-R Pro mount also has an ST4 auto guider port.

You’ll really like thoughtful features such as the EQ6-R Pro dual saddle plate that will accept either Vixen- or Losmandy-style dovetails. A built-in carry handle near the polar scope will make transporting and setting up the EQ6R Pro mount much easier, as will the retractable counterweight shaft. Many telescope mount manufacturers do not include a polar scope on their mid-weight equatorial mounts, but not Sky-Watcher! They have included a built-in illuminated polar scope to help make polar alignment a breeze.

The Skywatcher EQ6R Pro mount sits on a very sturdy tripod, with 2” diameter stainless steel legs, a tripod spreader plate with cut-outs for eyepiece storage, and tripod feet that will snuggle into the dirt or grass. The SynScan hand controller slides to a handy holder that attaches to one of the tripod legs.

The EQ6R Pro also comes with two ll-lb. counterweights, a Canon EOS Trigger Cable, and thread-on Power Cable.

Please Note: The EQ6-R mount now includes a USB hand controller. As a result, Sky-Watcher no longer includes the PC-link cable in this package.
