The Sky-Watcher HEQ5 mount includes an illuminated polar finderscope to aid the alignment process. The finderscope features a circular grid reticle for the Northern Hemisphere, consistent with today’s popular polar alignment apps. For astronomers in the Southern Hemisphere, the constellation Octans is built into the reticle as well. Even without a clear view of Polaris, the HEQ5 Pro can be polar aligned using our SynScan hand controller. Simply choose one of the visible stars listed and use the latitude adjustment screws to center it in the eyepiece.

The SynScan Go-To system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900 objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The SynScan Hand Control also has the ability to connect to a computer via a RS-232 cable. Once the connection has been established between the computer and SynScan Hand Control, many commercially available planetarium software programs can be used to control the HEQ5 PRO Mounts.

The HEQ5 Pro mount is equipped with WiFi capability with an Wi-Fi Adapter (not included with this model). Simply connect the mount to the SynScan App by using the Wi-Fi Adapter and you may control your telescope through your mobile device.
