SynScan EQ5 GoTo upgrade kit is a complete kit that allows you to convert the traditional SkyWatcher EQ5 equatorial mount to the Pro version, which will be perfect for both visual observations and when running an astrophotographic set.

The drive of the declination and right ascension axis is realized by stepper motors with 1:32 microstepping. The torque is transmitted to the axles via heavy-duty gears. Thanks to the inclusion of all the necessary accessories to the set, their installation is hassle-free and very intuitive.

The work of the whole set is controlled by the SynScan controller, the software of which is responsible, among other things, for controlling the periodic error and reducing the backlash effect. Most importantly, the device's database contains information on the location of over 42,000 planets, stars, galaxies and other objects from the Messier, NGC, and IC catalogs.

Attention! The set includes only a power adapter with a cigarette lighter plug. The appropriate AC adapter has to be purchased separately.

Question : Does the system also track automatically, or is it just tracking?

Answer: Guides and tracks, tracks and guides. You don't need to use GOTO (search, guidance), you can just use tracing. When we use GOTO, after finding an object, the system immediately follows the object, keeping it in the field of view for the next minutes and hours.

Question : Is the set includes everything I need?

Answer: The set does not include the power supply. You should also buy an RS-232 cable
