The Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount is conveniently less
hefty than the heavier Orion Atlas EQ-G mount, but it utilizes the same GoTo
drive motors, electronic features, and functionality. The Orion Sirius EQ-G
can support up to a 30-lb. load of equipment easily for all your visual astronomy
or astrophotographic applications.
With its computerized GoTo system and hand controller, the Orion Sirius EQ-G
provides a terrific platform for electronic acquisition and tracking of celestial
objects. Select from among 42,900 objects in the GoTo database using the intuitive
menus on the easy to use hand controller, or take a guided tour of the finest
celestial showpieces. After a rather simple alignment procedure, the Sirius
EQ-G GoTo Mount can take you on hour after hour of astronomical adventures as
it locates, then points the attached telescope to cosmic curiosities. The internal
dual-axis stepper motors of the Sirius Mount slew the attached telescope at
speeds up to 3.4° per second for efficient stargazing sessions.
The Orion Sirius EQ-G Computerized GoTo Telescope Mount includes an illuminated
polar-axis telescope, 8.3" dovetail mounting bar, and one 11-lb. counterweight.
The tripod is remarkably sturdy, as evidenced by the 1.75"-diameter stainless
steel legs and cast-metal spreader plate. The plate doubles as a convenient
accessory tray, with holes for storing telescope eyepieces while out in the
