The Upgrade Kit GoTo allows you to discover new possibilities of the Sky-Watcher Dobson 8 "telescopes in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the use of GoTo technology, both searching and tracking a given object with telescopes mounted on azimuth mounts become extremely easy and precise.

High-resolution stepper motors are responsible for the precise course of tracking objects and following them. They are controlled by the SynScan controller, known from the best computerized Sky-Watcher equatorial assemblies.

As the offered set includes all the necessary elements and constitutes a complete mounting kit for an optical tube, the extension of the telescope with the GoTo system can be easily performed by any observer.

Question : Does the system also track automatically or only guides?

Answer: Guides and tracks, tracks and tracks. You don't need to use GOTO (search, guidance), you can only 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.
