This easy-to-install GoTo kit allows you to transform a non-motorized EQ6 equatorial mount into an equatorial GoTo mount, ensuring star tracking and automatic aiming at celestial objects. The piloting is done by a manual controller that includes more than 49,000 stars: a catalog of classical stars, catalogs of double and variable stars, catalogs of Messier objects, NGC and IC, as well as the planets. and the moon.
The kit also includes a self-guiding interface, almost a must for photography. The power supply is 12V 3A, using a cable with a male plug for a cigarette lighter. It is possible to supply the kit with other optional solutions (220V / 12V transformer, battery pack, etc.). This model is designed to be mounted exclusively on EQ6 type supports (not exclusively motorized).
Go-To Automated Signaling System
After calibration (setup) with the Pole Finder on Pole Star, select the one, two or three star mount alignment. More than 49,200 objects, whose main catalogs are registered in the database (Messier, NGC, IC as well as the planets, the Moon and the Sun). For maximum comfort, the frame moves quickly, up to 3.4 ° / sec using manual control. Easy to use, it helps to quickly point the instrument to any galaxies, nebulae, clusters or objects in the solar system. Discover in detail the famous Andromeda galaxy, the fabulous curtains that surround the heart of Orion, the Hercules cluster M13 and its heart rich in thousands of stars. Saturn, Jupiter and the Moon are also wonders to be considered without moderation.
The indication on the racket of the date, time and place of observation combined with the "Tour" function allows your SynScan GoTo mount to target the most interesting objects for a whole night. Take a guided tour of the sky from your observation point by clicking the "Enter" button according to the object presented in a drop-down list. After selecting the object you want to photograph or observe, it is close to the center of the field ... a real treat!
