I've been meaning to tell you about this mount for a few weeks now, but keep
forgetting to do so.

     Its a brand new product for 2015 from the folks at Skywatcher, and its worth checking out

One of the features I really like on it is the is the Freedom Find technology.

In simple English, that means you can manually move the telescope to any position in the sky
or electronically, and you will not lose your alignment or positional information.

That is just one of the features of this remarkable, new mount.

     Doing astroimaging?

Here is another one:

f Batch Exposures Function

The AZ-EQ5 GT mount is equipped with two SNAP ports which can control the shutter releasï¾­ing of two cameras. Working with the SynScan hand controls Camera Control function, a user can take batch exposures    when doing astrophotography. Up to 8 groups of Exposure-time & Frames combinations can be set on the SynScan hand controller.
