EQ5 pro mount vs EQM 35

Recommended Posts


does anyone know the differences between these apart form £10 in cost - payload looks the same and build quality is on a par and both look perfect for my needs  , as I’m not interested in high payloads etc any opinion would be welcome 

also interested how they might compare to the SA GTI as all similar prices

Be aware that the EQ-5 Synscan is a popular mount that works well (I have one) wheras some reviews from EQM35 owners are very negative.

Could share a few links ? I’ve only seen very positive reviews

thanks I’ve read these and it’s very subjective and not sure it answers my questions in which is better necessarily as they seem to contradict themselves tbh 

my use will be both AP and visual and I’m leaning the the eqm 35
