Freedom Find™ - tracking made easy!
With the patented Freedom Find (dual-encoder) technology which allows the telescope to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session.New Features:
♦ German Equatorial / Alt-Az dual mode
♦ Permanent periodic error correction(PPEC). PPEC can be trained with Autoguider or PC.♦ Belt drive - Super smooth PE curve. Low backlash, silent slewing.♦ Shutter release control for batch exposures of astrophotography.♦ Motor controller with high torque and accuracy.♦ Include two dual-fit (45mm/75mm) saddle for mounting two telescopes.♦ Improved reliable power supply outlet.♦ New motor controller with higher torque and accuracy.♦ Polar-alignment with polar-scope.♦Primary axis encoder tracks the mount's position. Users can push the mount at any time without worrying about losing the mount's alignment.

Special Applications of EQ6 and AZEQ6 Pro mounts:
Our equatorial or alt-azimuth GOTO mounts are not just for telescopes; some of our customers also use EQ6 or AZEQ6 Pro mount to work as a 2-axis precise positioning or rotation test platform with its heavier payload capacity and to be controlled by a computer to simulate in variety testing or measurement conditions, such as the applications of device test platform for Measurement While Drilling (MWD) in oilfield drilling industry etc. "
