    AZ-EQ6 SynScan is capable of carrying heavy-duty photographic equipments for professional shooting and video recording. It is a very efficient transportable mount weighing only 15 kg, for a load capacity of 20 kg (counterweight excluded).

     

       

    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.

    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.   "
