Compatible with EQMOD using a Lynx Astro EQDIR adapter :

The new EQ6-R Pro Synscan builds upon the legendary EQ -Pro mount with a slew of new features that will appeal to astro-imagers! 

Includes Skywatcher's computerised Synscan™ GOTO handset which enables you to point your telescope to 42,000+ night sky objects, or tour the skies at the touch of a button. 

EQ6-R PRO vs NEQ6 PRO: 

The EQ6-R has a higher payload, is belt driven (reduces backlash and improves guiding) has a redesigned body with a carry handle (easier to transport and setup) and improved latitude adjustment (more sturdy and effective over a wider range of latitudes).  It uses an RJ45 plug for the handset connection (better than the DSUB used by the EQ6, especially in the dark!) and a screw-on power connector (more secure and reliable than the NEQ6 PRO's push-fit power connector). It also has a new 'SNAP' camera control port so you can fire a DSLR camera automatically from the mount.
