Take your solar observations to the next level with the Sky-Watcher SolarQuest Motorized Alt-Azimuth Solar Telescope Mount.
This purpose-built mount is uniquely designed to make solar viewing
fast and easy—without the need to align your gear the night before.
HelioFind system has an auto-level function and utilizes an internal
GPS receiver to determine your location, date, and time, then calculate
the precise position of the sun. This is all done with a single push of a
button. Once aligned, the mounts tracks the sun automatically. An
eight-way control pad allows you to precisely center the sun. This is
specifically designed for solar viewing and photography and is not a
traditional GoTo system.
The SolarQuest has a standard Vixen-style
dovetail plate and a payload capacity of 11 pounds so it can easily
handle most solar scopes plus accessories. Its DC servo motors are
powered by an included 12 VDC power adapter or eight user-supplied AA
batteries. Supporting the mount is an adjustable-height aluminum tripod
that comes with an extension to raise the mount head higher without
sacrificing stability and an accessory tray.
