The Saxon NEQ6 Pro Go-To is a heavy duty mount with the highest payload for its price. For visual observations it can hold f/5 Newtonians up to 250mm in diameter or f/8 refractors up to 150mm. For astrophotography the NEQ6 represents an affordable option for large instruments such as Newtonians up to 200mm in diameter or refractors up to 120mm.

It includes a polar scope with the southern hemisphere reference, an integrated bubble level and an adjustable tripod for a quick set up.

It 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 bar can accept Losmandy and Vixen style bars and the two tightening knobs do not directly touch the dovetail bar, avoiding marks on your telescope.
