Great upgrade

It's been a welcome relief to have a dependable mount that can do long exposures. Perfect tracking and no more headaches.

Item is good, but missing a cable and I was not advised correctly by seller

I received the item and everything looks good except for 2 issues: 1) The package contents says there should be a “pc-link” cable which didn't come in any of the 2 boxes received. 2) I was advised by the seller (Allen) that the mount would be compatible with my Meade SN8 OTA dovetail bar, but it isn't, so I cannot use my OTA with this mount without any modification. I'm waiting for a reply about this since 5/1, without reply yet.

Very fine high tech mount

Excellent! What a mount! It's super high tech compared to what I had in the '70s. I plan to load it up to or just past the max so I had to order two more weights. When I get it together I'll have to send you a picture. I haven't used it yet, still waiting on the additional weights.

Sky-Watcher EQ6-R

This is an outstanding mount for the money. Having owned several mounts in this class over the years I must say Sky-Watcher has taken the best of the past and built a solid successor. Straight out of the box this mount exhibited no play in RA or DEC. Tracking has been spot on! Great mount at a great price.
