Freedom Find™ - tracking made easy!

 

With the patented Freedom Find (dual-encoder) technology which allows the telescope to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session.

 

   

New Features:

♦ German Equatorial / Alt-Az dual mode
♦ Permanent periodic error correction(PPEC). PPEC can be trained with Autoguider or PC.
♦ Belt drive - Super smooth PE curve. Low backlash, silent slewing. 
♦ Shutter release control for batch exposures of astrophotography. 
♦ Motor controller with high torque and accuracy. 
♦ Include two dual-fit (45mm/75mm) saddle for mounting two telescopes. 
♦ Improved reliable power supply outlet. 
♦ New motor controller with higher torque and accuracy. 
♦ Polar-alignment with polar-scope. 
♦Primary axis encoder tracks the mount's position. Users can push the mount at any time without worrying about losing the mount's alignment.

Special Applications of EQ6 and AZEQ6 Pro mounts:

 

Our equatorial or alt-azimuth GOTO mounts are not just for telescopes; some of our customers also use EQ6 or AZEQ6 Pro mount to work as a 2-axis precise positioning or rotation test platform with its heavier payload capacity and to be controlled by a computer to simulate in variety testing or measurement conditions, such as the applications of device test platform for Measurement While Drilling (MWD) in oilfield drilling industry etc.   "
