Skywatcher EQ8 Synscan GoTo - German Goto Mount with Super HD Tripod
... for Telescopes to 50kg weight. Incl. 2x 10 kgs counterweight

Skywatcher EQ8 Synscan Mount with Tripod

Dual Encoder Design

With the patented dual encoder design, you may move the scope to any position manually or electronically without deactivating the tracking mode first. After moving to a new object, the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session. The mount is good for remote observatories.

It utilizes 0.9 degree per step bipolar stepper motors to get high resolution. It uses stepper motors without reduction gear to drive worm shaft directly so to remove the periodic error caused by reduction gear.

Computer Operation
Couple the solidly-built mount with the included SynScan computer controller to utilize many of the same functions and features as Sky-Watcher's most advanced SynScan mounts. It also could be controlled by SynScan Tour.

Permanent programmable periodic error correction (PEC) - corrects for periodic tracking errors inherent in all worm drives.

Convenient Alignment
It could go back to initial position of the telescope automatically, which is convenient for alignment.

Superior Stability
The EQ8 mount is supported by an improved Super HD Tripod. The tripod is made from the finest rolled carbon steel and can be raised to a height of 1347mm. The tripod uses a dual leg support for maximum rigidity with an upper leg brace to provide an outward preload and a lower leg brace providing inward tension.

Stable pillar/tripod design
The very massve tripod allows hieght adjustment between 0,75 meter and 1 meter.
