    EQ6-R Pro - A Silent GoTo Mount

    Nobody wants a loud mount. The EQ6-R’s precise belt drive and stepper motors provide accurate GoTo and star tracking without the loud motor noises. For longer exposures, the EQ6-R is equipped with an ST-4 autoguider port, allowing you to make precise corrections automatically with your favorite guiding software and guide camera (Guiding Software and Camera not included).

    With the Sky-Watcher EQR-6, you are not limited to small refractor telescopes and mini cameras. Feel free to add your large scope, astro camera and other imaging accessories, this mount’s generous 44lb weight capacity can handle it! Plus, with two independent 11 lb. counterweights and a retractable counterweight shaft, you’ll have no trouble finding precise balance of your heavier imaging system.

    The mount head weighs 38 pounds making it light enough and small enough to be portable for those dark-sky adventures, but still substantial enough to support larger telescopes. The built-in carrying handle makes transportation easy.

    Telescope attachment is simple with the included saddle, which accepts both types of dovetails (Losmandy and Vixen style) out of the box.
