Skywatcher EQ3-2 Equatorial Mount

Skywatcher EQ3-2 Equatorial Mount
Incl. VAT 20.00 % ( £31.50 )
Product Code

The EQ3-2 mount is a basic mount which is stable enough for the entry level astronomer to use with a refractor optical tube of up to 4" or a lgit weight 6" Newtonian. We recommend this mount for the Altair Astro 150mm Newtonian, 80mm Starwave and Lightwave refractors and especially as a budget mount for the Starwave 70ED refractor.

The aluminium tripod with accessory tray is quite stable yet light enough to carry about easily.

Slow-motion control knobs allow for continuous manual tracking of celestial objects.

It is possible to upgrade the EQ3-2 with a basic dual-axis tracking motor on both R.A. and DEC. axes*, or even the full SynScan GOTO system*. An optional polar alignment scope is available to aiding in accurate polar alignment.

A good companion for those wanting to start exploring the skies visually, but who want a slightly higher quality optical tube, such as a Lightwave 60mm or 80mm Refractor or the Starwave 70ED, 80ED or 102ED refractors.

* Please note that you need to follow the instructions carefully in order to install the Polar Scope, GOTO and motor upgrades which arrive separately packaged.
