Altair 8" F5 Newtonian & SkyWatcher EQ6-R Pro SynScan Goto Equatorial Mount
Altair 8" f/5 Newtonian telescope - for Observing and Astrophotography:
This telescope is a true all-rounder and ranks among the best in this range. Through the versatile focal ratio of f/5, the Newtonian offers best prerequisites for lunar and planetary observations. The optimised secondary mirror is designed for deep-sky observations as well as for astrophotography.
SkyWatcher EQ6-R Pro SynScan Goto Equatorial Mount
This is the new NEQ6-R PRO mount which has an improved altitude adjustment knob, a belt drive, and a handle for carrying the rather hefty head unit, making use in the field much easier. Until now, these features were addressed with aftermarket modifications to the Standard NEQ6 PRO which could be quite expensive, so the "R" is the next step up. This makes the EQ6-R PRO SynScan good value mount to consider with a reasonable carrying capacity and accuracy, while still remaining affordable.
