Telescope MAK 180/2700 Black Diamond EQ6-R PRO GOTO SkyWatcher

Telescope MAK Black Diamond 180/2700 EQ6-R PRO 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).

The Maksutov Signature Series is the new generation of professional quality Maksutovs from Sky-Watcher. These telescopes are manufactured to the highest levels of optical and mechanical precision, resulting in exquisite optical performance and finish. Even the most critical observer will be delighted and surprised by the performance of the Sky-Watcher Signature Series Maksutov telescopes. In many applications the sharpness and image quality of these telescopes matches and exceeds that of the classic Schmidt-Cassegrain design.


The EQ6-R boasts a number of features to aid astrophotographers. The built in ST-4 Autoguider port turns this mount into an astrophotography powerhouse, allowing you to utilize most of today’s best autoguiders. Using the integrated RS232 port, you can control the telescope from your computer and take advantage of today’s most advanced astronomy software. With a weight capacity of 44 lbs, the EQ6-R can handily support an optical tube, imaging accessories and camera.

Silent Yet Precise Slewing

The EQ6-R Pro uses Stepper motors with a 1.8° step angle and 64 micro steps driven. Stepper motors are quieter than servo motors, providing accuracy up to 1 arc minute without waking your neighbors from buzzing motors.

42,000 Object Database

Using our proprietary SynScan hand controller, the EQ6-R Pro provides a user-friendly interface with automatic slewing to over 42,000 objects in the night sky. The hand controller can also connect to a computer using the supplied RS232 cable (USB adapter available), enabling computer control with most astronomy programs. For the astrophotographers looking to reduce Periodic Error, the SynScan hand controller has built in PEC training that can be configured while in the field!

Flexible Polar Alignment

Sky-Watcher includes an illuminated polar finderscope to aid the polar alignment process. The finderscope features a circular grid reticle for the northern hemisphere, consistent with todays popular polar alignment apps. For astronomers in the southern hemisphere, the constellation Octans is built into the reticle as well. Even without a clear view of Polaris, the EQ Pro can be polar aligned using our SynScan hand controller. Simply choose one of the visible stars listed and use the latitude adjustment screws to center it in the eyepiece.

Bundle of Accessories

As customary with all Sky-Watcher products, an assortment of accessories are included with the EQ Pro mount. A retractable counterweight bar is supplied, allowing for easier transportation as well as two 11-lb counterweights are included to help balance any payload. The EQ Pro features a saddle compatible with both D and V style mounting plates, granting users the flexibility to utilize multiple optical tubes, even if the mounting plate is different.
