Skywatcher NEQ6 Synscan setup time


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. It's been a few years since I've posted here. I didn't have the time and sold my 200p Dob. Anyway, the interest has always been there and now I'm interested in getting back into both Visual and AP.

I'm considering getting the 200pds and NEQ6 Synscan or maybe the EQ6 and use the laptop.

How easy is the NEQ6 to set up when out and about or even setting up in the yard? Of course it will get quicker with practice bit my concern is if it's going to take ages to set up each time before use.

Cheers ☺

Mine takes 20 minutes to set up outside from packed away to imaging. Polar alignment takes about a minute to get 10 seconds or less. I use my 130pds instead of my 200pds because it's a heavy piece of kit, I can only just carry it outside all set up.

edit: I have an NEQ6
