Sky-Watcher SynScan mounts have been designed for use by novices and experts alike. These mounts provide extremely high precision tracking and have built in autoguider ports. This heavy-duty HEQ5 Pro mount is a smaller version of the sturdy EQ6 Pro mount. It is specially designed for observers who need the steadiness of the EQ6 Pro mount but finds the EQ6 Pro mount too physically demanding.

With the included Wi-Fi adapter and the SynScan Pro app (available for free through the Apple and Google Play stores) even an inexperienced astronomer can master the HEQ5i’s variety of features in a few observing sessions.
