Telescope Esprit ED 80/400 HEQ5 PRO DS GOTO SkyWatcher

Telescope Esprit ED 80/400 HEQ5 PRO DS GOTO SkyWatcher

Sky-Watcher has just informed us of a change in the upcoming deliveries of EQ6-R and HEQ5 mounts, they will be delivered without the Go-To hand controller. To replace this controller, Sky-Watcher will provide a WiFi adapter that will allow the mount to be controlled directly with a smartphone or tablet (control from the free SynScan app with the same functions as the handheld controller).

TUBE FEATURES

Esprit 80ED, 100ED, 120ED and 150ED Super APO refractors have a doublet field flattener to get a flat field and minimize aberration and distortion. Their wide 48mm opener ensures a larger and clearer aperture and also extremely minimized halation. Connect the triplet and doublet field flattener with a high precision thin thread to keep the optical axis perpendicular to the image. 

Main Features:

- Premium optical materials 

- Short focal length and full frame corrected focal plane 

- Excellent field flatness 

- Precision linear power focuser is standard 

- Metallic high-transmission lens coatings 

- Light-baffled optical systems 

- Telescope tube attachment hardware 

- Zero detectable Colour Fringing even on Bright Objects

- Knife-edge Baffled Optical System

MOUNT FEATURES

Sky-Watcher SynScan mounts have been designed for use by novices and experts alike. These mounts provide extremely high precision tracking and have built in autoguider ports. This heavy-duty HEQ5 Pro mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 Pro mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the steadiness of the EQ6 Pro mount but finds the EQ6 Pro mount too physically demanding. 

For novice users the user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to 42900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The SynScan Hand Control also has the ability to connect to a computer via an RS-232 cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium software programs can be used to control the HEQ5 PRO Mounts, They also come with features that advanced astronomers can appreciate.
