The HEQ5 GoTo Equatorial Mount with Tripod from Sky-Watcher is a precise and sturdy platform for your optical tube assembly, featuring GoTo computer tracking that enables even novice stargazers to find and observe more than 40,000 celestial objects. The mount comes with counterweights and a tripod featuring 1.75″ rolled steel legs, providing a stable rig for observation and astrophotography.

Sky-Watcher HEQ5 GoTo Equatorial Head

The Sky-Watcher Sky-Watcher HEQ5 Equatorial Head SynScan mount has been designed for use by novices and experts alike. It provides high-precision tracking and has built-in autoguider ports. This heavy-duty HEQ5 Pro mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 Pro mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the steadiness of the EQ6 Pro mount but find its use too physically demanding. But make no mistake, the HEQ5 Pro can be that perfect mid-range rock-solid platform you build your astroimaging rig on.

42,000+ Object Database
For novice users, the user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The hand controller can be connected to a PC using the built-in USB Type-B port and a USB Type-B cable (not included). PC control can be done with SynScan Pro for Windows app or your favorite third-party software with the correct drivers.
Flexible Polar Alignment
Sky-Watcher includes an illuminated polar finderscope to aid in the alignment process. The finderscope features a circular grid reticle for the Northern Hemisphere, consistent with today’s 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 HEQ5 Pro can be polar aligned using the SynScan hand controller. Simply choose one of the visible stars listed and use the latitude adjustment screws to center it in the eyepiece.
