Designed and built to provide a versatile platform for astronomers and astrophotographers of all levels, the Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ5 Equatorial / Alt-Az Motorized GoTo Mount
is outfitted with precision motors, a quiet low-backlash belt drive, a
computer controller and sturdy tripod to provide an ideal platform for
observation and imaging. This unique mount ships configured as a German
Equatorial mount capable of long-term RA tracking when properly polar
aligned. To expand its versatility and usability, it can be reconfigured
to an alt-azimuth mount, and with a simple mode change on the hand
controller it will function flawlessly with dual-axis tracking. For
star-parties or separate observation and imaging rigs, it can be
converted to a dual-OTA set up.
The SynScan system has an
internal database of 42,900 celestial objects including the complete
Messier, NGC and IC catalogs and 25 user-defined objects. To keep it
current its firmware is updatable through the built-in serial port via
updates downloaded through the Internet. With multiple alignment
options, ten slew speeds, and automatic tracking capabilities, finding
and keeping objects centered in the field of view is easy no matter if
you're viewing the fast-moving Moon or much slower deep space subjects.
