Eq5 mount question


Recommended Posts

Simple answer is: No.

The standard EQ5 (EQ5 Deluxe) is a manual mount, it doesn't have any motors to drive the axis, although these can be retro-fitted.

The EQ5 Pro has stepper motors and a control handset. This is compatible with the ASIAir but will need either a USB cable to plug the handset into the ASIAir or the EQDIR cable to replace the handset.

As has been said the short answer is NO. The standard EQ5 is a manual mount and you couldn’t even buy the motor kit for it, as they move the mount axis too slowly for go to. You would need to buy the Synscan go to upgrade kit which would equate to a total price roughly equal to buying the EQ5 pro in the first place.
