High Precision Goto Tracking Mount

For astronomers looking to take their visual observing and astrophotography to the next level, this high-precision, easy-to-use Goto tracking mount is a perfect choice. Experienced users will appreciate the extra load-carrying capacity for visual use, as well as the ability to convert it into a DSLR mount.

Equatorial GOTO long exposure astrophotography tracking mount

Development of the mid-range EQ3 mount popular in various forms with thousands of astronomers around the world for decades, the EQM-35 has considerable enhancements aimed at more precise guiding and better stability. An updated RA worm drive for improved tracking with 180 teeth compared to 130 on previous versions. The Dec drive is also a worm drive for smoother slewing.

Uprated bearings throughout and general stability enhancements were key to the new mount. PE (periodic error) correction has also been improved. A die-cast ZL102T0 aluminium body has meant an increase in weight of just 0.5kg compared to the current EQ3 mount despite the increased stability and rigidity.

Lightweight, portable tracking mount for DSLR photography

With a removable Dec assembly, the EQM-35 quickly converts into a heavy-duty tracking mount for wide-field or long-exposure DSLR photography. In this lightened configuration you can even pack the EQM-35 into your hand luggage when travelling.

The EQM-35 is compatible with the complete range of Sky-Watcher DSLR mounting brackets and accessories.
