  1. Please find for sale my SkyWatcher 250 Reflector and NEQ6 SynScan mount. The reflector has of course been used and shows sign of use on the outside of the tube but the mirrors show little sign of wear or tear apart from a few dust specks. As you can see from the photos the Scope is in very good condition and all viewings are welcome. The NEQ6 mount powers up but refuses to move. This may be just an update to the handset or maybe the gears need a touch of TLC due to itself being sat doing nothing for so long. The tripod is missing the locking pin that pulls the plate up against the legs but this will be reflected in the price. i would like to offer this to the SGL community as I know it will go to someone who will appreciate the kit and do so much more with it than I’ve been able to. Given the fact I haven’t used this kit for a few years now and I’m also moving house, I know longer have the time or room for it so this is the only reason for sale. *** Update 26/1/2020 I have purchased a new support shaft for the tripod and I have also got the NEQ6 moving so the motors seem to be absolutely fine, please see latest video attached of the NEQ6 powered up and moving. Skywatcher 250 - £200 NEQ6 - £450 Collection only from Walsall/West Midlands Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Wishing you all clear skies wherever you are IMG_2242.MOV
