About Sky-Watcher EQ6-8Rh Pro Mount Head

Building on the legacy of Sky-Watcher’s popular EQ8 mount, the EQ8-R and EQ8-Rh introduce a variety of upgrades and enhancements that make observatory-class astrophotography easier than ever.

Whisper-quiet dual belt drives greatly reduce Periodic Error while providing enhanced tracking and guiding. The fully realized cable management system eliminates cable drag and makes remote set-ups ridiculously convenient.

Sky-Watcher EQ6-8Rh Pro Mount Head Features

  • The EQ8-Rh model features an on-axis Renishaw 11.8 million tick incremental encoder on the RA axis, virtually eliminating Periodic Error during tracking and allowing for extremely precise guiding for even the most demanding astrophotographers.
  • 110-pound (50 kg) Payload
    All-metal precision internal construction makes this mount strong and stable. The EQ8-R is a perfect fit for even the largest OTAs Sky-Watcher has to offer.
  • Belt-drive On Both Axes
    Belt drives provide minimal backlash and significantly reduced periodic error, which mean smoother, more accurate tracking
  • Integrated Cable Management System
    Built-in USB 3.0, power, and serial ports eliminate cable drag and reduces the worry of cable snags
  • The EQ8-R has an optional polar scope available, making polar alignment quick and easy
  • Cable management features four USB 3.0 ports, three 2.1mm power ports and three serial ports
