Have you ever wanted to look at the surface of the sun? The Sky-Watcher SolarQuest Mount is a device that will allow you to safely and accurately view the sun's surface. The simple to use and setup mount means that all you need to do is level your tripod and point your solar telescope towards the sky - The incredible Sky-Watcher HelioFind Solar Alignment Technology will do the rest for you!

Sky-Watcher SolarQuest Mount Key Features:

    Fits on any tripod with 3/8" tripod thread Accepts telescopes with standard 45mm Dovetail Bars Auto drift correction through feedback from Solar Sensor Solar Sensor with 4 x Photodiodes & built-in GPS data fixing Lightweight and portable Quiet operation Max payload of 4kg Solar Viewing made easy

Expanded Sky-Watcher SolarQuest Mount Key Features:

Please read!

The SolarQuest mount is designed to be used with solar telescopes only. Looking directly at the Sun without verified-safe, professionally made solar filtering will cause immediate and irreversible damage to the eyes (blindness), damage to the telescope, and will be a fire risk.

How it works

This bit of kit is really easy to use. After you have pointed your solar telescope up, in any direction, you can press one button and the telescope will auto-level and using the GPS data fixing inside, it will calculate the altitude and azimuth of the sun based on your time and location. It will then search for the sun via the solar senor and the lock on, silently and constantly tracking to keep the sun in the field of view.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
