About this product

Model:  skywatcher-CQ350-pro-head
Part Number:  20309

NEW Sky-Watcher CQ350 PRO Go-To equatorial mount with centre-balanced and claimed 35 kg payload for astro-photography, excluding counterweights.

The CQ350 PRO' payload capacity places it neatly between the Sky-Watcher EQ6-R PRO and EQ8-R PRO.

The dual-fit 45mm/75mm saddle supports Vixen-type and Losmandy-type dovetails so can be used with a wide range of OTAs and peripheral equipment.

With high-precision belt-driven stepper motors on both axes, movements are smooth and quiet.

Supplied with a Synscan computerised handset with 42,900 object database and two 10kg counterweights.

An optional external polarscope is available as an accessory.

Tripod is not included but two are available: the 20293 Pier Tripod for EQ8 (CQ350 has the same hole spec'/spacing as EQ8) and a new tripod with 2.75" stainless pipe legs.
