Product description

The NEQ-5 mount:

This mount is a further development of the EQ-5, in a white design. It provides a solid platform for most large telescopes and is excellent for exploring the night sky. Once you have aligned the parallactic mount on the Pole Star, you can easily sight on an object, position it in the field of view, and track it using the slow motion control knobs provided. Fine adjustment is possible in right ascension and declination. The polar elevation at the observing site can be set using the fine scale provided and adjusted perfectly by using two screws. Both a polar finder and electric motors for both axes plus a control unit can be retrofitted: the NEQ-5 is suitable not only for visual observing, but also for getting started in astrophotography. Long exposure astrophotography is also possible with the optional upgrades available, such as the motor kit or the GoTo kit. With a little practice, you will soon be able to produce successful images of galaxies and nebulae.

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.
