NEQ6 MOUNT: This extra heavy-duty mount is the largest in Sky-Watcher mount family. Specially designed to support large telescope tubes. This high-precision equatorial mount features engraved aluminum setting circles and a latitude scale, built-in polarscope for both Northern and Southern Hemisphere use, large R.A. and dec locking clamps, electric slow-motion controls on both axes, and retractable counterweight shaft and counterweight. The strong and rigid field tripod is remarkably stable with adjustable height, incorporating 2"-diameter steel tripod legs. We highly recommend this mount.
