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!

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.
