Details

The Maksutov-Cassegrain are the ideal choice for people looking for a compact and easy to use telescope (collimation is very simple) but that offers increased performance, particularly at high magnification. So this telescope is ideal for planetary observation and photography (Solar System planets or Moon) where it's important that the image keeps the highest contrast at high magnifications (in order to record the smallest details).

This powerful yet compact 150mm diameter Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope provides excellent performance at high resolution at a low price! The unique optical design offers the best performance in planetary observation and photography, where you need to generate high magnification maintaining as high contrast as possible. The planets and the Moon show many fine details, but you can also use this Skywatcher MAK150PRO for observing deep-sky objects, the stars will look truly like pinholes!

 

 

SynScan hand-pad firmware 4: precise tracking and automatic goto and many functions

The SkyWatcher HEQ5 SynScan mount uses SynScan computer to control all functions, even the most advanced ones dedicated to astrophotography. The main functions are:

- 42.000 objects internal database
- 1, 2 or 3 stars guided alignment
- Sidereal, solar or lunar tracking speed
- Slewing speed from 2x to 800x 
- 4 version firmware, upgradable through the internet (more internal memory than the previous version to let you more upgrades in the future)
- PEC (Periodic Error Correction), PAE (Pointing Accuracy Enhancement) advanced functions and assisted polar alignment.

At the base of the hand-pad, you can find the computer connection port: via the supplied cable, you can connect the mount to a computer to control it remotely. Then you can use one of the many compatible planetary software (such as Cartes du Ciel) to control the mount not only from the hand-pad but directly from the PC.

Using the same cable connection, you can update the  hand-pad firmware by downloading the updates that SkyWatcher periodically releases on the internet. The SynScan hand-pad is also compatible with the GPS accessory: it automatically detects the location of the place of observation (latitudine and longitude), date and time for an easier and more precise initial alignment procedure of the mount itself.
