The Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ6 SynScan gives optimal stability and pointing accuracy for a wide variety of heavy professional photo and video equipments. It is a hybrid mount with alt-azimuth capability for general use, and equatorial capability for astrophotography use. Supplied with a SynScan handset with dual AZ/EQ firmware, it can automatically find and track over 42,900 celestrial objects from its database. AZ-EQ6 SynScan is capable of carrying heavy-duty photographic equipments for professional shooting and video recording. It allows accurate repeatable pointing on 6 programmable targets and is a very efficient transportable mount weighing only 15 kg, for a load capacity of 20 kg (counterweight excluded). An excellent feature of the AZ-EQ6 SynScan is the patented dual-encoder technology. This technology allows the telescope to be moved manually either axis without the mount losing its positional information which gives enormous freedom and convenience for users. New Features: ♦ German Equitorial / Alt-Az dual mode ♦ Permanent period error correction(PPEC). PPEC can be trained with Autoguider or PC. ♦ Belt drive – Super smooth PE curve. Low backlash, silent slewing. ♦ Shutter release control for batch exposures of astrophotography. ♦ Include two dual-fit (45mm/75mm) saddle for mounting two telescopes. ♦ Improved reliable power supply outlet. ♦ New motor controller with higher torque and accuracy. ♦ Polar-alignment with polar-scope or SynScan HC’s polar-alignment routine. ♦ Primary axis encoder tracks the mount’s position. Users can push the mount at any time without worrying about losing the mount’s alignment. Includes: Two Dual-fit Saddles Two 5kg counterweights Tracking Accuracy: 0.1436 arc minutes DSLR Electronic Shutter Release Port : Yes Autoguider Port: Yes PEC control in EQ mode Polar Alginment : via software control or supplied polar scope alignment methods: 1, 2, or 3 star alignment (EQ) / brightest star or 2 star alignment (AZ) Telescope Connection: 2 x dual-fit saddle plates supplied accepting 45mm & 75mm dovetail bars RA/DEC Worm Gears: D=92.5mm, 180 teeth, brass RA/DEC Axes: D=40mm, steel

The mount comes with the GPS module, the hand controller, tripod, 3x 5kg counterweights, polar finder, 8” tripod extension, an EQDIR cable to connect the mount directly to a PC without the hand controller and a second saddle to install a second telescope on the counterweight bar. It also comes with an AC DC adapter. However, the cigarette plug has been replaced by Anderson PowerPoles. An adapter from the PowerPoles to the cigarette plug is included. The azimuth knobs have been replaced. The original knobs were too small to allow a precise adjustment. The new knobs are much more comfortable and precise. The mount has completely been regreased to replace the original grease that wasn’t performing well in cold temperature. This regreasing greatly improved the guiding performance.
