The new BD180602 will include EQ8 mount head, Synscan hand control, 2x10kg CGE counterweight, aluminum case, and a GPS.

Large RA and DEC ring gears provide high resolution required for accurate tracking and lever length for mechanical load.

Whisper Slew- very low noise generated by the mount at any time- especially during a slew.

Freedom Find™ - Dual encoders keep track of mount axis positioning, therefore once a successful alignment has been completed, it is possible to move either mount axis by loosening RA and/or DEC clutches and repositioning the mount(without using the hand controller). GoTo ability and accuracy is maintained when clutches are relocked. This is a particularly useful feature if re-balancing is required after a star alignment has been completed.

Snap Port- The EQ8 mount is equipped with a SNAP port which, in conjunction with SynScan hand controller, can control the shutter release of a DSLR camera. Up to 8 combinations of batch exposure time and counts can be set in order to automate astrophotography.

Permanent PEC- encoder technology is used to accurately record periodic error and can be toggled on or off at the user's discretion.

Home Position- The EQ8's home position can be set to allow returning the mount to a pre-determined orientation.
