The Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 is the perfect solution for amateur astronomers who want the benefit of an azimutal and an equatorial GoTo mount but without the disadvantages of them.

Features:

♦ intelligent astronomic platform with dual azimuthal and equatorial GoTo control box
♦ switch in seconds from equatorial to azimutal mode
♦ stability like the EQ6 Synscan in the equatorial mode
♦ better polar wedge, better counterweight shaft
♦ 26% lighter than the original EQ6 mount (mount head weighs only 15 kg)
♦ very stable mount for a second telescope on the end of the counterweight bar - also good for guiding scopes
♦ the data base includes more than 42900 objects
♦ optical encoders, the control box holds the coordinates also when you move the mont without motors

Advantages against a azimutal Goto fork mount:

♦ better stability
♦ more transportable (you can split the telescope to mount and optical tube)
♦ more flexibility - you can decide which telescope you want
♦ more stability in equatorial mode - fork mounts reduces their stability when you use it with a wedge

Advantages against a simple parallactic mount:

♦ you can decide if you want to work in the more comfortable azimutal mode (no polar alignment) OR in the equatorial mode for astrophotography

Better polar wedge with quided thread:

You can adjust the lattitude without problems with mounted telescope!
