    Orion GoTo Upgrade Kit For Skyview Pro EQ Telescope Mounts

    Orion GoTo Upgrade Kit For Skyview Pro EQ Telescope Mounts


    Upgrade your standard SkyView Pro telescope with a computerized Orion GoTo system that automatically locates and tracks more than 42,900 targets with pushbutton ease. The convenient GoTo hand controller features intuitive menus for easy target acquisition. Dual stepper motors slew the telescope at 3.4-deg per second to center your target in the eyepiece. The kit installs easily and requires no modification to the telescope mount. Includes two motors, motor control box, and hand controller. Requires a 12-volt DC power source or an AC power adapter (both sold separately).

    Please note that SkyView Pro telescope mounts purchased before mid-2004 are not upgradeable.

    Questions & Answers

    Ask a Question
    • Is it compatible with Skywatcher EQ3-2 mount?

      Unfortunately, no. The SkyView Pro is larger than the EQ-3-2 and the mounting surfaces are different.

    • Are the values tunable? Like #motorrotations vs degrees slew? Because i want to build it on a custom mount.

      The slew rate/track are directly correlated to the gear ratio of each axis. The gears that come with the motors are specifically matched for the Skyview Pro EQ mount. You cannot tune the track rates with the hand controller.

    • Hi, Is it compatible with Skywatcher EQ5 mount? Thanks.

      Neither Skywatcher or Orion does not state that these items are mutually compatible. However, some customers have written on various forums that they have had success installing this motor on their Skywatcher EQ5 mounts.
