EQ8 SYNSCAN GPS
Dual Encoder Design
With the patented dual encoder design, you may move the scope to any position manually or electronically without deactivating the tracking mode first. After moving to a new object, the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session. The mount is good for remote observatories.
It utilizes 0.9 degree per step bipolar stepper motors to get high resolution. It uses stepper motors without reduction gear to drive worm shaft directly so to remove the periodic error caused by reduction gear.
Couple the solidly-built mount with the included SynScan computer controller to utilize many of the same functions and features as Sky-Watcher's most advanced SynScan mounts. It also could be controlled by SynScan Tour.
Permanent programmable periodic error correction (PEC) - corrects for periodic tracking errors inherent in all worm drives.
It could go back to initial position of the telescope automatically, which is convenient for alignment.
The EQ8 mount is supported by an improved Super HD Tripod. The tripod is made from the finest rolled carbon steel and can be raised to a height of 1347mm. The tripod uses a dual leg support for maximum rigidity with an upper leg brace to provide an outward payload and a lower leg brace providing inward tension.
Stable pillar/tripod design
The very massive tripod allows height adjustment between 0,75 meter and 1 meter.
50kg Payload Capacity!
