EQ5 SYNSCANThe first impressions of the assembly were of reassuring stability. The 3-star alignment is a great feature of the Go-To facility. Every time we set up, it accurately place the item we wanted in the field of view of our 25mm eyepiece. The more it was used, the easier is was to go straight to an object or star. The alignment process could not be simpler. In all, the alignment process works so well that you can be on a selected object and tracking it accurately within minutes. Overall the EQ5 SynScan gave a new lease of life to our smaller scope. It is easy to carry and it allowed us to give friends and neighbours a quick tour of the delights of the night skies.BBC SKY AT NIGHT MAGAZINE Polar scope includedMagnifications (with eyepieces supplied): x40 & x100 Highest Practical Power (Potential): x240 Objective Lens Diameter: 120mm Telescope Focal Length: 1000mm (f/8.33) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): 10mm & 26mm Direct SLR Camera Connection 9x50 Finderscope Dual-Fit 1.25"/2" Focuser 2"/50.8mm Star Diagonal Adjustable Objective Lens Cell Multi-Coated Objective Lens EQ5 SynScanTM Heavy-Duty Computerised GOTO Equatorial Mount (Requires 12 volt DC Rechargeable Power Supply) Built-in Dual-Axis Stepper Motors Built-in Polar Alignment Scope Holder 1.75" Stainless Steel Pipe Tripod with Accessory Tray 38% more Light Gathering than 102mm
