The Skywatcher EQ5 Pro GOTO Mount is an EQ5 mount equipped with GoTo capabilities. It has the same type of computerized features found on the heavier HEQ5 and EQ6 Pro mounts. It includes the proprietary SynScan GoTo system; the massive database of celestial object locations and automated alignment functions.

Accurate Automated Slewing
Software and hardware work together to produce the most precise movements possible. Precision crafted gears and motor drive are controlled by the software functions on board the hand controller. The software has built-in error correction to compensate for gears wearing out and other internal factors that affect accuracy.

Enhanced Stargazing Experience
Once the mount is assembled, you only need to complete the alignment process to start viewing. Automatically point your telescope to the different celestial objects stored in the database at the touch of a button. The user-friendly menu allows even the novice users to access the different features of the system. The upgrades lets you spend more time viewing and less time searching for your chosen celestial objects.
