OPT is happy to present the upgraded and improved version of Sky-Watcher's EQ6 mount; The EQ6-R Equatorial Go-To Mount! Sky-Watcher entered the construction and design of this new mount with the primary goal of surpassing their already popular E6-6 Go-To mount, and have certainly succeeded. With enhanced rigidity, stability, and payload capacity the Sky-Watcher EQ6-R has improved on all the basic parameters that make an equatorial mount great, increasing the payload capacity to an impressive 44lbs while also ensuring greater stability for the mount as a whole when holding that weight. And it's not just hardware improvements with this mount either; the EQ6-R also boasts improved electronics and software compatibility that meld cleanly with the hardware changes to produce a variety of high quality improvements. This includes permanent periodic error correction, zero-play power transmission, and high precision latitude adjustment even at the maximum load capacity. One completely new feature is the SNAP jack that permits camera control. The design of the mount as a whole has been overhauled for ergonomics with a convenient carrying handle for transport.
