Upgrade your standard SkyView Pro Equatorial Mount to enjoy the luxury of computerized object-location and tracking!

Install the Orion GoTo Upgrade Kit for SkyView Pro EQ Telescope Mounts on the Orion SkyView Pro EQ Mount to transform the equatorial mount into a computerized GoTo platform with the capability to locate and automatically track more than 42,000 celestial targets with pushbutton ease. With this handy Upgrade Kit installed along with your preferred telescope, views of even the most elusive galaxies, nebulas, stars, and star clusters will all be as close as the touch of a button. What's more, the GoTo system can also help you locate and automatically track closer objects like the Moon and planets.

Everything you need to install the computerized GoTo system is included with the Orion GoTo Upgrade Kit for SkyView Pro EQ Telescope Mounts. Complete instructions are included to make kit installation easily. Kit includes Right Ascension (R.A.) and Declination (Dec.) protective motor covers, motor control box, SynScan V4 Computerized GoTo Hand Controller, controller bracket, and all necessary cables and installation hardware. Requires a 12-volt DC power source or an AC power adapter (both sold separately).

GoTo motors

Precise stepper motors for Right Ascension (R.A.) and Declination (Dec.) axes of motion are included.

Once installed and aligned, dual stepper motors precisely slew the Orion SkyView Pro Mount and attached telescope of your choice at a rate of up to 3.4-degree per second to center your target in the eyepiece. Protective motor covers are included to keep the motor housings and gear wheels safe and clean for optimal performance.

GoTo Hand Controller

Take a motorized tour of interesting celestial objects with the GoTo Hand Controller.

The GoTo hand controller and dual-axis GoTo motors and encoders allow you to automatically point your SkyView Pro mounted telescope at a specific object, or tour the skies with pushbutton simplicity after an alignment procedure has been performed. The controller's user-friendly menu allows automatic slewing to and tracking of over 42,000 celestial objects. Even inexperienced astronomers will find themselves quickly mastering the variety of features the GoTo hand controller offers in just a few observing sessions.

Give your SkyView Pro Mount a serious upgrade and add object-locating GoTo functionality!
