The SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6 SynScan gives optimal stability and pointing accuracy for a wide variety of heavy professional photo and video equipments. It is a hybrid mount with alt-azimuth capability for general use, and equatorial capability for astrophotography use. Supplied with a SynScan handset with dual AZ/EQ firmware, it can automatically find and track 42,900+ celestrial objects from its database. 

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, you may move the telescope to any position manually or electronically without deactivating the tracking mode first. 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.
