Sky-Watcher Equatorial Mount EQ5 - Mount Head
The mount is a solid base for telescopes up to 10 kg weight. For example, it can carry a Newtonian telescope or a Schmidt-Cassegrain up to 200 mm aperture or a refractor up to 150 mm aperture in a compact design. The mounting convinces above all by a good mechanical quality, such as ball bearing axes or precise worms. This and the optimal expandability allow the mount to grow with your requirements. The mount EQ5 is a purchase for the whole life. We see the EQ5 as an optimal mount for the upscale entry into astronomy. The EQ5 does not obstruct any future development possibilities, for example for astrophotography.*]

The EQ5 is very expandable
The EQ5 is THE standard for many accessory manufacturers. For this reason, there is a wealth of useful accessories for the mount, which we have linked to the accessories recommendations, such as for example:
Stepper motors with controls
GoTo motor system with control (SKGOTOKIT)
Optical and electronic polar finder scope
Dovetail bars and double mounts for astrophotography
Tripods, pier top (half pier), piers for fixed installation
Accessory holder for the counterweight rod


Free choice of tripod - depending on application
Many tripod manufacturers have taken EQ5 as standard for their tripods. The range of suitable tripods and columns is correspondingly large. In the accessories area you will find among other things:
Sturdy piers for fixed installation
Ultralight tripods, for example for air travel or for the use of the EQ5 right ascension base as a star tracker


Conversion into a stable astrotracker for air travel
A special feature of the EQ5 is the removable declination axis. All you have to do is loosen two screws. With the Photoguider upgrade, you can turn the EQ5 into a stable and precise astrotracker. The weight of the tracker is about 3 kg without tripod.

"Ich verwende die EQ-5 in meiner Sternenwarte auf einer Betonsäule. Empfehlen würde ich sie jedem, der eine gehobenerere Einsteigermontierung sucht für Teleskope bis 10KG und allen, die einen Einstieg in die Fotografie sucht."
