The EQ-5 is well known as a decent budget mount with surprisingly good stability and tracking for a small mounting.
It is now available with the Skywatcher Skyscan goto controller and stepper motors to provide full goto performance and an autoguiding port.
This mount will be a good choice for portable imaging with a small APO or other short focal length telescope.
The very sturdy EQ5 Equatorial mount provides excellent precision and stability and a host of other useful features for the serious astronomer. The mount rests firmly on a large, adjustable stainless steel pipe tripod with accessory tray. Supplied complete with a bubble level, latitude adjuster with micrometer scale and an azimuth polar-alignment adjuster. It also features engraved aluminium setting circles and manual slow motion tracking controls. An optional polarscope is available for aiding in polar alignment.
