    Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized Equatorial Mount - 09995

    The Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount and Tripod by Orion:

    Less hefty than the Atlas, but with the same drive motors, electronic features, and functionality, the Orion Sirius EQ-G Mount supports up to a 30-pound load for all your visual or astrophotographic applications. It accepts either a GoTo or a dual-axis (non-GoTo) hand controller, depending on your needs. 

    Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount includes an illuminated polar-axis scope, 8.3-inch dovetail mounting bar, and one 11-pound counterweight. The tripod supplied with the Orion Sirius EQ-G Mount is remarkably sturdy, as evidenced by the 1.75-inch diameter stainless steel legs and cast-metal spreader plate. Requires 12V DC power source or AC to DC adapter. Weighs 32-pounds, not including counterweight.


    With the GoTo option, the Orion Sirius EQ-G makes a terrific upgrade into the high-tech realm of effortless, electronic object acquisition! Select from among 13,400+ celestial objects using the intuitive menus on the hand controller, or take a tour of the finest celestial showpieces. The internal dual-axis stepper motors slew your telescope at up to 3.4-degrees per second. The GoTo hand controller's firmware can be updated over the internet.
