    Product Description
    Details

    The Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro GOTO EQ Mount provides extremely high precision tracking and has built in autoguider ports. This heavy-duty HEQ5 Pro mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 Pro mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the steadiness of the EQ6 Pro mount, but find the EQ6 Pro mount too physically demanding.

    For novice users the user-friendly menu 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 RS-232 cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium software programs can be used to control the HEQ5 PRO Mounts, They also come with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate:

  • Positioning Accuracy up to 1 arc minute. Accuracy enhanced by software collimation error (mount mechanical error) compensation.
  • Stepper motors with 1.8° step angle and 64 micro steps driven.
  • Auto Guider Interface for astro-photography.
  • Guiding speed selectable from 0.25X, 0.50X, 0.75X, or 1X.
  • Object database containing complete Messier, NGC, and IC catalogues.
  • Minimal vibration for steady long-exposure photography.
  • Periodic Error Correction.
  • PC compatibility.
  • Upgradeable hand control via internet download.

    Good value for small general use binoculars
    Overall Score
    The Saxon 8x25PDR Porro Prism Binoculars seem good quality for the price paid and relatively stylish. I would recommend the product if someone wants a pair of general small binoculars at a cheap price. Review by Sally Pitchforth (Posted on 28/12/2009)
