Product description

Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount

  • The Sirius EQ-G supports up to a 30-lb. load for all your visual or astrophotographic applications
  • Select from among 42,900 celestial objects using the intuitive menus on the hand controller
  • Take a tour of the finest celestial showpieces with the hand controller
  • Includes a polar-axis scope, 8.3" dovetail mounting bar, and one 11-lb. counterweight
  • The tripod is remarkably sturdy with 1.75"-diameter stainless steel legs & cast-metal spreader plate

Less hefty than the Orion Atlas, but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality, the Orion Sirius EQ-G supports up to a 30-lb. load for all your visual or astrophotographic applications. With the computerized GoTo system and hand controller, the Orion Sirius EQ-G makes a terrific upgrade into the high-tech realm of effortless, electronic object acquisition! Select from among 42,900 celestial objects using the intuitive menus on the hand controller, or take a tour of the finest celestial showpieces. The internal dual-axis stepper motors slew your telescope at up to 3.4° per second. The Orion Sirius 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. Requires 12-volt DC power source or AC-to-DC adapter. Weighs 32 lbs., not including counterweight

For owners of the Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Mount whose version of the GoTo hand controller is 3.0 or greater, the GoTo hand controller's firmware can be updated over the internet.

Our expert comment:

Skywatcher is changing the interface on the newest version of the EQ-6 mount. You can find out here which EQMOD cable you require depending on which version of EQ-6 you have. If your mount has a DB9 interface (also known as a serial port, as found on older computers), these are the suitable EQMOD cables:

If you purchased your EQ-6 recently and it has the new interface panel (along with an RJ-45 male connector, similar to the EQ-6-R or the AZ-EQ-6), the cables listed below should fit this new version of the EQ-6. However, we are still gathering information to confirm this (updated end of October 2022):

If your mount already has a USB interface on the panel, you do not need an additional cable. Simply identify the COM port using the device manager and set the baud rate to 115200. If you are in doubt, send us a picture of your mount's interface panel by email.
