Sky-Watcher EQ3 Pro SynScan
Sky-Watcher offers simple solutions for users who would like to attach their smaller telescope to a convenient computerized system but do not wish to deal with the weight of the HEQ5 or EQ6 mounts. The EQ3 PRO SynScanTM mounts use the same Go-To system found in the HEQ5 and EQ6 PRO SynScanTM.
Supplied with aluminium TRIPOD, It allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. Its extensive database includes a massive 42,900+ night sky objects.
The EQ3 PRO SynScan mount is a perfect instrument for novice visual observers and imagers to enjoy astronomy with minimal setup time and in-depth knowledge of the night sky.

"I wanted something that could replicate the functionality and ease of use of my EQ6 PRO mount, but packaged in an ultra-portable form....GOTO accuracy was simply amazing for a mount of this size and cost. It hit every one of the ten or so targets with the 26mm eyepiece....has the potential to revolutionise the portable astronomy market. Whilst other products exist for the travelling astronomer, this one seems to have it all" Astronomy Now Magazine
