Model: sw_star_discovery_mountPart Number: 20307Brand: Skywatcher
The new Sky-Watcher Star Discovery mount is an upgraded version of the AZ Go-To mount and features FreedomFind™ dual encoder technology. This allows the telescope, once aligned, to be moved manually or electronically in either axis without the mount losing its alignment or positional information. After moving to a new object the mount will continue to track it accurately.
With motors on both axes the Star Discovery mount can automatically slew a telescope to any subject from the Synscan V4 computerised handset database of over 42,900 night sky objects, including objects from Messier, IC, NGC and Caldwell catalogues, the planets, named stars, double stars, variable stars and even user-defined objects such as new comets.
Accepts telescopes fitted with a regular Skywatcher/Celestron/Vixen-style dovetail bar.
Really pleased with this mount. Only just got it so haven't had a really good play yet, but it appears to do everything I required. The service from FLO was very helpful and very friendly.
