Sky-Watcher Virtuoso Versatile Mount...



This lightweight, motorized mount from Sky-Watcher is versatile, indeed! With the 90mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope attached to the arm, you can use the Virtuoso as a nighttime telescope with the two eyepieces that are included in the package. Extra eyepieces can always be added later on as your interest in the hobby grows. During the day you can look at activity on the Sun with the included full aperture solar filter and special sun finder. Watch huge sunspots grow and shrink with your own eyes, and know that you will always have a way to safely view solar eclipses! When you're not looking at the Sun you can use the telescope as a terrestrial spotting scope. Watch for whales from the beach, safely view wildlife when you're camping or on vacation, or check out the bird's nest in your own backyard!

With most telescopes, when the optical tube assembly is being removed from the mount, you are normally putting everything away. Not with the Sky-Watcher Virtuoso! The multi-function motorized mount with dual-encoders can help you take pictures or video with your phone, camera, or camcorder that you wouldn't be able to achieve if you were holding the device in your hand. Attach the special bracket to the mount and then simply mount your device to the bracket. Make a panoramic photo of your surroundings, or use a video camera to go "video cruising" and program up to six stops in the sequence. There is even an automatic shutter release function for the Canon Rebel EOS DSLR camera included on the mount.The Sky-Watcher Virtuoso Versatile Mount requires 8 AA user-supplied batteries, which means you can take this mount anywhere! Sit it on a picnic table, a solid cement wall, or other flat surface, or attach it to a tripod if you'd rather stand. The dual-axis encoders on the mount allow you to make manual movements during tracking without causing the electronics to losing alignment.
