    Product Description
    Details
    Sky-Watcher AZ-EQ5 GOTO Mount with NEQ5 Tripod The AZ-EQ5 Goto Mount is a smaller and lighter version of highly successful AZ-EQ6 Goto from Sky-Watcher. It is a hybrid mount with Alt-Azimuth capability for general terrestrial use and Equatorial capability for astrophotography use. Features with hybrid stepper motor drives on both axis for smooth slewing at up to 4.2°. The mount accepts the standard ST-4 style autoguider input for astrophotography, and also has a DSLR shutter control port. Come with a SynScan handset with dual AZ/EQ firmware, it can automatically find and track 42,900+ celestial objects from its database. Freedom Find™ SkyWatcher patented Freedom Find is a technology which allows telescope to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information. 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. If the user wants to operate the mount with the SynScan hand control again, all that is needed to be done is to re-lock the clutches. This feature can be enabled or disabled on the SynScan hand controller. Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC) After a proper PEC training routine where data stored in the motor controller permanently, user can start PEC at any time to improve the tracking performance for short focal length astrophotography. A training process is not required in the next observing session (assuming that the polar alignment is always accurate), thus this is a Permanent PEC. A user can train the mount with manual guiding or auto-guiding.
