  • Determines the Solar Alignment

This is the Solar Quest Solar Tracking Mount and Tripod from Sky-Watcher. It is a Dedicated Solar-Tracking Mount; meant for use tracking the Sun only, not for night sky star tracking. The Sky-Watcher SolarQuest solar tracking mount is lightweight and amazingly easy to use. No need to worry about aligning your equipment the night before or early in the morning.

Using its patented built-in "HelioFind" solar finder and built-in GPS, SolarQuest autolevels itself and then calculates the azimuth and altitude of the sun, all with the single push of a button. Once self-aligned, the mount locates and tracks the sun for hours at a time. It uses DC Servo motors to track the Sun in Altitude and Azimuth mode. It runs on 8 AA batteries (batteries are NOT included), or it can also run on external 12 Volts DC supplied with included adapter plate (needs an external source of 12 V DC).

This Sky-Watcher Solar Quest Solar Tracking Mount uses a Vixen style dovetail plate for mounting your own scope. It has slewing speeds of 16x and 1200x for rapid relocating movements, and tracks at the solar rate in Az-El (Alt-Az) mode. This solar tracking mount only weighs 8.9 lb but has a payload capacity of 11 lb. It includes an adjustable aluminum tripod with an accessory tray and a tripod extension. SolarQuest is perfect for eclipse chasers or anyone fascinated with our closest star. This Solar Quest Solar Tracking Mount is made for solar observations only.

If you are interested in observing our Sun with your own dedicated solar telescope this is the perfect mount to track the Sun for hours with no fuss and no mess, just enjoyment and ease of operation. Remember, ONLY ever observe our Sun with a telescope which is designed for solar viewing, or with proven, dedicated, safe solar filters on a regular scope.
