  5. Hi guys What type of Grease would I use for a strip and refurbishment of my Eq6 pro. There is a couple of tubs of geoptik Grease you can buy but at 18 quid pop its a bit on the expensive side. Like any thing astro twice the price. I did it a couple of years ago and it is very stiff just wondering if I used the wrong grease but this time I'm going to fit a belt drive. Regards Solarboy

  7. Hi guys Wanted Eq6 Bearing Ring Removal Tool Has anybody out there done a rowen Eq6 belt drive upgrade if so would you like to sell the bearing removal tool. Regards Solarboy
  8. Hi guys Thinking of buying a Eq6 R I have a Heq5 Pro with a belt drive fitted just putting the ad on to see if there is any interest. It as been observatory mounted so there is no tripod but thay can be found on the astro ad sites for around 40 or 50 quid I have had the mount for few years so has it as been around the block a few times but still work's and tracks well. I have to put a price on this so I think around the £400 plus shipping or can be picked up due to wieght. I would be open to a trade. It comes with all the usual equipment hand set weights and cables etc. Please note I will fit original alt and dec ajusting bolts and the losmandy dovetail plate that came with the mount when I bought it. Synscan v3 hand set.
