Product description

EQ6-R PRO Synscan - a thorough redesign of a classic!

The computer-controlled EQ6-R PRO Synscan™ mount is an evolutionary improvement of the legendary EQ6 PRO. The modern, streamlined design of the EQ-6 R PRO includes new features that experienced astrophotographers will immediately approve of.

  • maximum load of 20kg for astrophotography.
  • belt drive for minimal 'backlash' - particularly quiet, smooth operation and better results when guiding, as well as higher torque with the drive!
  • improved polar elevation adjustment with a larger adjustment range. The mount is aligned via the built-in polar finder or using the Synscan control. The adjusting screws have been significantly improved as compared to the previous model.
  • built-in 'SNAP' connector for camera shutter control.
  • PPEC worm gear and periodic worm error correction (eliminates the need to constantly fine-tune the drive)
  • built-in carrying handle for easy transport. At 17.3kg in weight (without tripod and counterweights), the mount is with still very portable.

The included Synscan™ hand control allows the telescope to find specific objects and offers tours of the current night sky at just the push of a button. The user-friendly menu allows the selection and automatic tracking of over 42,000 astronomical objects.

Excelent tripod

Review by Rfarcol on 19.01.2022 13:03:17

I've been using it since early december and it's such a nice tripod! Very easy to use, super sturdy, even when using my 8" newtonian.
