This model include the dual dovetail saddle for Vixen and Losmandy bars. 

 

The Saxon HEQ Pro Mount is a portable mount for visual observers and professional astrophotographers who want a solid and reliable solution with a payload of up to 14kg.

With a mount head weight of 10kg this professional mount is ideal to be carried anywhere in search of dark skies and solar eclipses. The integrated bubble level and the adjustable tripod legs make the levelling easy. The azimuth and altitude axis can be adjusted for a precise polar alignment (polar scope included).

The HEQ5
is compatible with the Ascom drivers but also allows to guide with the ST4 protocol. The periodic error can be reduced through the PPEC (Permanent Periodic Error Correction).

The SynScan computerised go-to system has a database with 42,900 objects to quickly locate and slew to target. It has 9 slewing speeds up to 800 times the sidereal speed (3.3°/sec).

The dual dovetail saddle can hold Vixen and Losmandy style bars; it can be upgraded with the Geoptik dual saddle for higher stability.
