About the EQ2 Equatorial Mount:

The EQ2 Equatorial Mount is suited to both beginners and experienced astronomers. It offers very good stability and the tall, fully adjustable aluminium tripod with large accessory tray is a real plus. This mount features 360º slow-motion tracking gears on both the right ascension and declination axes with flexible controls. Dual metal setting circles allow location of objects by their R.A. and DEC. coordinates. A separate latitude adjustment aids in polar alignment. An optional D.C. Motor Drive can be installed to the R.A. axis for auto-tracking purposes.

Reflector Telescopes

Reflectors use concaved mirrors to collect light with the mirror diameter referring to its aperture. As large mirrors are relatively inexpensive to manufacture, reflector telescopes tend to be cheaper than similarly sized Refractor or Catadioptric telescopes giving excellent value for money.
