Product description

Omegon Advanced EQ-300 - sturdy equatorial mount for up to 6kg

A stable equatorial mount is the basis for any successful astronomical observing. The Omegon EQ-300 mount has a load-bearing capacity of up to 6kg, letting you choose from many different OTAs. Perhaps you have a 150mm Newtonian telescope and also want to use your 5" refractor? The EQ-300 lets you mount anything in the small to medium-sized range of telescopes.

Equatorial design - easy to follow the stars

This mount is an equatorial design. Once aligned, the mount can track stars, planets and other astronomical objects by rotating on a single axis. The advantage is that you only have to track the telescope using that one axis, making it easier to hold objects in the field of view. So you will have hours of relaxed observing and perhaps even be able to get your entire family interested in your hobby.

Precision location of the celestial pole

As with larger mounts, the two azimuth screws and two polar elevation screws ensure quick and easy alignment on the Pole Star - letting you get on with an exciting night's observing.

Preparation for a polar finder scope

If you are interested in astrophotography, then why not equip your mount with an advanced polar finder scope. This lets you increase the mount's precision and takes your astrophotography to the next level. Long exposures (motor recommended) then become possible.

Steel tripod for more stability

This stainless steel tripod provides a much more stable base for the telescope mount compared to models made from aluminium. It is exactly this steadiness that the quality of your observing ultimately depends on. The three steel legs are additionally reinforced by a metal plate giving you a tripod that will not wobble during your observing. The metal plate also has holes provided for holding your eyepieces during your observing sessions.

The advantages in a nutshell:

  • stable equatorial mount
  • for small to medium-size telescope OTAs
  • quick-release coupling for OTAs with prism rails
  • track objects precisely using the slow-motion controls
  • with extendable stainless steel tripod - adjustable and ultra-stable
  • 4.3 kg counterweight
  • upgradable motor available for automatic tracking
