Equatorial mounts usually come as German equatorial or fork mounts. They both use a wedge set at an angle equal to the observer s latitude, in order to point to the celestial pole. German equatorial mounts counter the weight of the telescope with adjustable weights on a rod on the opposite side of the polar axis. Movement around this axis is called right ascension or R.A. while around the other axis is called declination or DEC.

The EQ5 provides the precision and stability needed for serious observing. With single or double axis motor drive attached, it becomes the perfect instrument for deep-sky photography. Standard features of the EQ5 include a built-in holder for polar scope, a latitude adjuster with micrometer scale, an azimuth polar-alignment adjuster, aluminum setting circles, large manual slow-motion tracking controls, and a bubble level.
