The dual-belt drive system ensures this mount to be extremely quiet while provided greatly improved tracking from previous Sky-Watcher mount designs. On top of these improvements, cable drag is a thing of the past. The Sky-Watcher EQ8-Rh Pro was created to bring more convenience to imagers at the professional level where cable management can be a nightmare. Thanks to this, the EQ8-Rh Pro is a perfect choice for remote imaging and observatory applications. If you’ve been looking for a mount that’s “just right” for your setup, the Sky-Watcher EQ8-Rh Pro has everything you could want.
On-Axis Renishaw Encoders
Thanks to the on-axis Renishaw encoders functioning at an incremental 11.8 million ticks, all periodic error is essentially eliminated, making for a mount that monitors itself almost perfectly. This is why the Sky-Watcher EQ8-Rh Pro is one of the best remote astrophotography mounts.
Heavy-Duty Load Capacity
The Sky-Watcher EQ8-Rh Pro mount is an all-metal mount crafted to support extreme telescope setups with heavy customization. This stable design is perfect to hold any of Sky-Watcher’s largest telescope OTAs and most other brand scopes as well.
Dual-Belt Drive Design
Belt drives already minimize the backlash that’s common in telescope astrophotography mounts, and with a belt drive on each axis, your periodic error will be minimal and easily accounted for. This belt system also ensures a more accurate tracking procedure than other equatorial mounts.
Integrated Cable Management
Never again will you need to worry about your cables getting caught up in your system, nor will you have any trouble knowing exactly how everything is laid out! With USB 3.0, power ports, and serial ports built in, cable drag is a thing of the past. Perfect your remote astrophotography system using the EQ8-Rh Pro.
