Home Telescopes SkyWatcher Telescopes SkyWatcher Explorer Pro SynScan Telescopes SkyWatcher DS-PRO 190MN EQ6-R PRO Telescope
The class leading EQ6-R Pro synscan goto mount with a 20kg instrument capacity and belt drives paired with the superb 190MN Maksutov Newtonian optic makes the perfect large aperture stable imaging system. The latest V5 handset provides accurate and easy to use goto technology, a truly evolved telescope package for serious deep sky imagers and visual observers.Compared to a similarly sized Schmidt-Newtonian, the Maksutov-Newtonian yields a sharper and more contrasty image. Naturally, the Maksutov-Newtonian is an excellent visual performer too!!The superb SkyWatcher EQ6-R PRO equatorial Goto mount uses the latest precision belt driven synchronous motors in both axis for smooth quiet slewing at over 4 degrees a second, these high torque motors provide superior guiding and tracking, perfect for serious astrophotography. Belt drive technology not only means quiet, smooth operation but significantly reduces backlash associated with geared systems. The dual fit dovetail makes this mount compatible with both Synta / Vixen and Losmandy type bars allowing virtually any brand ot optical tube to fit securely. The best in class payload of this robust equatorial mount is 20kg, allowing an extremely wide variety of optics to be used from refractors to RC's.
The SkyWatcher SynScan handset has an easy to use menu system yet enough advanced features to satisfy the most serious users with PPEC worm gear and worm periodic error correction function (avoids having to constantly re-train) as well as the vast 42000 object database with accurate Goto function. The built in illuminated polar alignment scope means polar alignment is accurately acheived without having to purchase a seperate accessory.Premium OpticsThe 190mm Maksutov-Newtonian from Sky-Watcher is just what astrophoimagers and serious visual observers have been looking for. The Maksutov-Newtonian design combines the best features from the Newtonian Reflector and the Maksutov-Cassegrain to create a telescope design that provides truly stunning image quality, providing high-contrast, perfectly flat images, free from false colour. The Maksutov-Newtonian design provides large aperture Apochromatic performance, with exceptional field correction, in a compact, amazingly affordable package. Stars appear as classic pinpoints across the entire field. Perfectly optimised for modern DSLR cameras. The premium optics are housed in a robust rolled-steel tube for excellent mechanical integrity. Five internal knife-edge baffles are included to eliminate internal reflections and further enhance contrast. The Primary Mirror is made of low thermal expansion Pyrex® glass for a significantly reduced cool-down time.Ergonomic features of the SkyWatcher EQ6-R pro include a convenient carry handle to help moving the head around as well as mounting it to the 2" diameter stainless steel tripod (included). The adjusters for latitude have a greater range and along with the other manual controls are all a large diameter and easy to grip even with gloved hands.The EQ6-R equatorial mount is equipped with a camera SNAP port facility which can control the shutter release of your DSLR camera. With the V5 SynScan hand controller camera control function you can take batch exposures when doing astrophotography, full details of this function are in the SynScan user manual.The EQ6 mount has always been well regarded as it has evolved, this latest R or reference version is again class leading in terms of features, affordability and load capacity.Included in the packageEQ6-R Equatorial MountStainless steel tripod2x 5kg CounterweightsPolar Alignment ScopeSynscan handset (V5 with USB) & cableCigar type power lead (requires 12v supply)SkyWatcher MN190 Maksutov Newtonian opticDual speed 2" focuser9x50 Right-Angled FinderscopeSupplied without EyepiecesWhat you need to use this mountA suitable quality 12v mains or rechargable power supply with a current rated above 4 amps (see related accessories below) and an optical tube assemblySpecificationsDiameter of Primary Mirror: 190mmDiameter of Secondary Mirror/Central Obstruction: 50mm/26%Telescope Focal Length: 1000mm (f/5.26)Maximum Payload (Counterweights excluded): 20kg (for Astro-Photography)Latitude Adjustment Range: 5º to 65ºAzimuth Adjustment Range: About ±9 ºMount Weight (Tripod excluded): 17.3 kgCounterweights Supplied: 2 x 5kgTripod Supplied: 2-inch stainless steel, 7.5kg WeightCounterweight Rod: 18mm Diameter, Length 240mm + 180mmPower Requirement: DC11~16V 4AMotors: 1.8 º Hybrid Stepper MotorsTransmission: 180:1 Worm Drive + 48:12 Timing Belt Drive + 64 Micro-step/1.8º Stepper Motor DriveGear Ratio: 720Resolution: 9216000 Counts/Rev., approx. 0.14 arc-secondMaximum Slewing Speed: 4.2 degrees/secondTracking Rate: Sidereal rate, solar rate, lunar rateTracking Mode: Equatorial modeAuto-guiding Speed: 0.125X, 0.25X, 0.5X, 0.75X, 1XPEC: 100 Segments Permanent PEC (PPEC)Hand Controller: SynScanDatabase: 42000+ ObjectsCelestial Object Catalogue: Messier, NGC, IC, SAO, Caldwell, Double Star, Vari-able Star, Named Star, PlanetsPointing Accuracy: Up to 5 arc-minutes (RMS)Integral SNAP camera control portDual-Fit 45mm/75mm Dovetail SaddlePolar Alignment Scope
