Det börjar komma fram lite mer information om Skywatcher HEQ 8 som ska lanseras i mars 2013.

"Dual Encoder Design Withth epatent dual encoder design, you may move the telescope to any positon manually or electronically without deactivating the tracking mode first. After moving to a new object the telescope will automatically begin to track the new object accurately. No re-setup is required in one observing session.
It utilises 0.9 degree per step bipolar stepper motors to get high resolution. It uses stepper motors without without reduction gear to drive worm shaft directly so to remove the periodic error caused by reduction gear.

Computer Operation
Couple this solidly-built mount withthe included SynScan computer controller to utilise many of the same functions and feature as SkyWatcher's most advanced SynScan Mounts. It can also be controlled by SynScan Tour.

Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) - corrects for periodic tracking errors inherent to all worm drives.

Låter lovande, hoppas man kan köpa monteringen utan stativet.
Dessvärre tror jag att priset kommer bli betydligt högre än $4995 (35000kr) i Sverige, detta är det rekommenderade priset i USA, jämför t.ex. CGE PRO som kostar $4490 (31500kr) i USA som går loss på 65000 kr i Sverige.
Priset i övriga Europa brukar väl hamna någonstans mellan dessa priser.
