New Sky-Watcher Skyhawk-1145PS with AZ-EQ Avant Dual-Mode Alt-Azimuth/Equatorial Mount - Perfect for Grab-and-Go!

The well engineered and easy to use AZ-EQ AVANT mounting provides excellent stability and precise control in either Alt-Azimuth or Equatorial configurations, via its smooth slow motion controls located on both axes.
