The Skywatcher AZ EQ6 is a new mount capable of carrying as many as 2 optical tubes simultaneously when used in altazimuth mode. The improvements over the EQ6 frame are many:

counterweight bar increased
head lighter by 26% compared to the EQ6 (the head of the AZ EQ6 weighs only 15kg without counterweights)
improved height adjustment and definitely more stable
same load capacity as EQ6 but with greater stability
the AZ EQ 6 can pass in a few moments from the altazimuth configuration to the equatorial one and vice versa
the attachment head of the second telescope (on the counterweight bar) has micrometric adjustments to align it with the main one, excellent for comparative tests or guide telescopes
can control a reflex via cable supplied
mounts telescopes with both a vixen and a losmandy bar
The most noticeable improvements introduced on the new Skywatcher home frame, in addition to the motorization with double encoder (to be kept active only if you wish to perform manual aiming with open clutches), reside in the oversized counterweight bar, which provides greater stability when heavy loads are present , and above all in the head of the AZ EQ 6, redesigned to be lighter and more performing, with a new height adjustment system.
