SynScan GOTO Mount that will take a massive payload
This is the new NEQ6. Used to be called the EQ6 pro. The differences are twofold:
1) A counterweight extension bar is included in the package – the mount is still supplied with 2 x counterweights though.
2) The mount is now supplied with TWO saddle plates; Sky-Watcher 45mm and 75mm. They are easily interchangeable and can be removed by loosening 3 x Allen screws.
This Monster Mount will satisfy amateur astronomers seeking superior equatorial control and the ease of a precision computerized GOTO system, the EQ6 ProScan is your answer. The Sky-Watcher EQ6 ProScan is designed with the novice user in mind. With the user friendly pushbutton hand control, locating and viewing the treasures of the night sky becomes as easy as a walk in the park. The 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 EQ6 ProScan also comes with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate.

I really wanted a EQ6 Pro but supply lines were long and my timeline was somewhat shorter! I have now been using this mount for a few months and can honestly say it is amazing, the tracking accuracy is stunning, I guide using PHD2 and the corrections made are minor. At one time I forgot to set PHD2 to guide on a 600s frame and there were no signs of trailing at all! I have no reservations at all about recommending this mount, accurate, easy and it works straight out of the box!Thanks to Rothervalley optics for leading me!
