Telescopes and mounts for a sophisticated introduction to astronomy

The EQ-5 from the Skywatcher EQ series is one of the largest and most stable equatorial mounts. It reliably carries optics weighing up to 10 kilograms without shaking. The mount is an ideal basis for observing and for the first astrophotographs for the more experienced beginner. Ball-bearing axes and worm gears allow objects to be precisely manually tracked. For even more control, the EQ-5 can be retrofitted with a GoTo motor set or an electronic polar finder.
