EQStarProEQ5 – NEW equatorial
mount control system designed to automate the control of the equatorial mount,
and can be used in stand-alone mode and in a control mode using a computer or
mobile device (phone, tablet, etc.)
This kit is based on the latest, high-performance EQStarPRO controller.
Compared to other controllers, the NEW EQStarPRO is faster, more
powerful, quieter and smoother!
On a PC, EQStarProEQ5 kit works with any astronomical programs that support the
ASCOM platform. For example, with the planetarium Stellarium, Cartes de Ciel,
StarCalc and others. Among astrophotography and auto-guiding programs, EQStarProEQ5
supports MaximDL, Guidemaster, PHD2 and others. When you work with a PC,
EQStarProEQ5 can automatically find celestial objects and automatically track
them (directing) during astrophotography with a high shutter speed. Also, when
working with a PC, you need to install the ASCOM application EQMOD.
EQStarProEQ5 also supports working with the INDI astronomical platform, which
was created for OS Linux.
Controlling the telescope using mobile devices allows you to automatically find
celestial objects. In the planetarium program on a mobile device, either
Celestron or SynScan should be selected as a telescope control, as well as a
mount – a German equatorial mount. EQStarProEQ5 supports the following mobile
applications - SkySafari, Stellarium mobile plus, DSOPlaner and others.
EQStarProEQ5 communicates with a PC via USB or WiFi, and with a mobile device
The variety of platforms, drivers, and applications that EQStarProEQ5 can run
on makes it possible to create particularly user-friendly control conditions
depending on the tasks.
For example, an astrophotographer typically uses a laptop or PC to search for,
aim and direct an object during a long exposure. These features are mainly
programs running under Windows. But for a lover of visual astronomy, it is much
more convenient to control the mount using a compact mobile device, smartphone
or tablet, rather than using a PC or laptop.
EQStarProEQ5 comes with a universal joystick for manual control, which allows
you to autonomously control mounting without a computer, smartphone or tablet.
The mount type is equatorial.
