  1. I bought this last year from a member on here and it has been an excellent mount, however I have now upgraded to an AZ HEQ6 GT. It has the odd marks of a used Mount, and mechanically it has just returned from being Hypertuned at DarkFrames in Portsmouth. Please see the attached Certificate. In January a Rowan Belt Drive Modification was fitted improving tracking and operation tremendously. In all on top of the original purchase price of £450 I have spent £112 on the Rowan Modification and £289 on the Hypertuning, totalling £851 plus the Pier Extension that took the whole lot over the £950, so I feel that I am being fair asking £725 ovno.Reduced to £695 ovno For the price I will also include the Pier Extension that helped my old back tremendously, this cost over £70 as well. The mount also has the much improved upgraded alt bolt modification. It also comes with two weights, cameras and scopes not included. There is a Syncscan Hand controller that comes with it which I have never used as I prefer to use the Ascom software with HEQ Mod as it is so much more controllable, I'll also include a 12v power lead. Collection preferable but will post at cost (I guess at £30 odd). I'm prepared to travel up to 50 miles to meet up anything further would be at fuel cost. You won't find a more sorted HEQ5 Pro for this price anywhere. Please PM me or send em an email to johnkulin AT outlook dot com or call me on 07976603113 Many Thanks.
