Designed to easily carry smaller refractor OTAs, such as their Personal Solar Telescope (PST) or SolarMax II, the Coronado EQS Equatorial Mount with RA Motor can be used completely manually with the dual-axis slow-motion cables; or with the right ascension motor installed, it will automatically track the Sun, Moon, or planets when it is properly polar aligned. A Vixen-style dovetail saddle allows many OTAs to be quickly and easily attached and dismounted using a single thumbscrew lock. Supporting the mount head is a stainless steel adjustable-height tripod painted in the iconic Coronado-gold to match their solar scopes.
