Skywatcher EQM-35 Pro Synscan Modular Mount

£555.00

Quick Overview

The Skywatcher EQM-35 Pro Synscan Modular Mount is a mount which can be used in various configurations: standard Goto Equatorial Synscan mode, in order to take telescopes and payloads of up to 10kgs and a "travel" photographic mode where the user can remove the Declination Axis and fit a camera platform in place for widefield photographic tracking in RA.

Although the mount head bears some resemblance to the Skywatcher EQ3-2, the Skywatcher EQM-35 is considerably uprated in terms of hardware: the EQM-35 mount is equipped with a larger 92.5 mm diameter Right Ascension worm wheel with 180 individual teeth for higher precision tracking (compared to 130 teeth for the EQ3). The mechanical strength of the rotary base has been also been increased. This results in much more stable system, with considerably higher payload capacity and less vibration. This also has knock-on positive effects on mechanical tracking accuracy as the periodic error is also greatly improved.
