The computerized Sky-Watcher NEQ6 PRO mounts are designed with the novice user in mind. With the user-friendly pushbutton SynScan Hand Control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The SynScan Hand Control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button.
The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 13,400 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The SynScan Hand Control also has the ability to connect to a computer via a serial cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium softwares can be used to control the NEQ6 PRO Mount. The NEQ6 PRO mount also comes with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate:
