    June is "Mount Madness" time as Sky-Watcher offers savings on many of their most popular mount models for astronomy, astrophotography, and terrestrial video and time-lapse photography.

    Save up to $40 on the compact motorized Virtuoso mount, an ideal compact mount for use with just about any camera or camcorder for capturing stunning panoramic photos for smooth panning video. It even includes a 90mm Mak-Cass OTA and two eyepieces. A fantastic deal at this price.

    Or save $35 on the bigger and versatile AllView mount for capturing professional panoramic images and video of cityscapes, nightscapes, or traditional astrophotography. The AllView features electronic shutter release, dual encoders, and a computerized hand controller to find more than 42,000 celestial objects.

    For handling heftier loads of up to 30 pounds, Sky-Watcher's AZ-EQ5 mountworks in equatorial mode for general astronomical observing or imaging or in altazimuth mode with one or two OTAs. With motorized belt-driven axes, two V-style saddles, counterweights, and a SynScan handset, this is a serious mount that's rugged enough for years of field use, yet light enough for nearly anyone to transport and set up. And it's on sale for $100 off the regular price.

    And for bigger loads, the beefier Sky-Watcher EQ-6R with 44-pound capacity makes the perfect base for serious astrophotography and visual observing. This precision mount includes SynScan controller, counterweights, ST-4 autoguider port, and a polar finderscope with illuminated reticle. Best of all, it's now $250 off the regular price.

    And one more thing... we now have the new Sky-Watcher HEQ-5 in stock! This mid-range, German equatorial mount features a 30-pound payload capacity, SynScan hand controller, and a sturdy rolled steel tripod. It also features roller bearings on both axes for smooth slewing and tracking, and a built-in illuminated polar finderscope. With a mount head weighing just 22 pounds, the HEQ-5 is perfect for the astrophotographer who wants a more lightweight version of the popular EQ6-R without sacrificing sturdiness.
