The mount rests firmly on a large, adjustable aluminium tripod with accessory tray. A bubble level allows for quick and accurate levelling. Slow-motion control knobs allow for continuous manual tracking of celestial objects.
The precision mount features full 360º worm-gear tracking controls on both R.A. and DEC. axes. Dual metal setting circle dials allow quick location of target using celestial coordinates. An optional polarscope is available for aiding in polar alignment. Optional single-axis and dual-axis D.C. motor drives can be installed for auto-tracking purposes.
Good Quality Mount Solid and well built mount. Easy and comfortable to use once set up. For someone not familiar with EQ mounts the manual was not as helpful as it could be but there is an updated manual, which can be downloaded from the Skywatcher web-site, which explains everything much more clearly.

Surprsingly well made and stable I bought this EQ mount after reading positive reviews on line, and I haven't been disappointed. The mount and tripod are quick to assemble and, despite having an aluminium tripod, seems rock steady. Using it with a dual axis motor drive and polar scope it stayed aligned on the moon for many hours. (15/02/2019) Mike - Shropshire
