This quality SkyWatcher EQ2 equatorial mount is built with larger mount head for greater stability and tracking precision.
The convenient dual setting circles allow observers to locate the objects by setting the R.A. and Dec. coordinates.
The heavier EQ2 mount rests firmly on an adjustable-height aluminum tripod with large wall-to-wall accessory tray and central stabilizer.
As the Skywatcher EQ1 mount, the EQ2 can be fitted with single axis motor drive for hand-free tracking.
