The newest SkyWatcher German Equatorial Mount is a genius of its trade and has enhanced many vulnerabilities the NEQ6 mounts may carry.

The EQ6-R is equipped with versatile features including:

  • Synchronous Belt Driven, resulting in minimal backlash, even quieter and smoother operation and better performance when guiding.
  • Bezel screw fit power connector for stable power supply
  • Improved dual saddle accepts both Vixen plates (45mm) and Losmandy plates (75mm)
  • Enhanced body design and carry handle for improved portability and set-up
  • Superior Latitude adjustment controls with greater range of latitudes possible
  • PPEC worm gear and worm periodic error correction function

The computerised Synscan hand control is a user-friendly menu system that allows automatic slewing to 42,900 night sky objects.
