The hand control allows you to point the telescope at a specific object or even tour the skies at the touch of a button. The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,000+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions.

"The Three-star alignment accurately corrects for cone error and subsequent GO-TO accuracy was impressive."

Fantastic Mount for Astrophotography
Friday, 22 October 2021  | 

I wanted to start Astrophotography and Simon recommended HEQ5 with Rowan upgrade which he installed for me. I am really impressed with this mount. It is really simple to use, sturdy and guides well. Thank you Simon for your advice. I will thoroughly recommend both the mount and The Widescreen Centre.
