We have received news of a new Skywatcher AZ EQ6-GT dual-load, dual-purpose heavy-duty mount incorporating both Alt-Azimuth & Equatorial GOTO functions.

Features

  • Intelligent astronomic platform offering star charts driven pointing with a new Synscan Tour graphical handset 
  • Incorporates a second platform where the counterweight bar can be replaced by a useful second telescope, such as a guidescope. 
  • Worldwide AZimuthal and EQuatorial platform for all latitudes. 
  • Can be used as a high stability platform for wildlife and landscape observation.
  • Stable yet portable. It is 26% lighter than the original EQ6 mount. 
No news yet of a launch date or price but we are expecting it to arrive around the end of this year.
