I have just ordered an astrozap heater strip and hitecastro dew controller from FLO ready for the Kielder star camp next week. I now need a scope cover and was thinking of the one below. Does anybody know if this will be suitable for my equinox 120 ed pro and neq6 pro mount or can anyone recommend a reasonably priced cover that will fit my scope ?

I bought one of these Scope Coats from Greenwich just in time for the recent Equinox Sky Camp, and it was well worth the investment. It fitted my SW Equinox 120 and EQ6 Pro without a problem. The mount and scope was left on the pitch, and was kept covered up until I needed to use it. The equipment was out in the "open" for six days, and everything was fine, with no leaks or dampness. If you have the legs of the EQ6 tripod fully extended, then the coat will only cover down to just above the tripod locking handles. The bottom part of the legs will be left exposed, but considering these are stainless steel, a little rain shouldn't cause a problem.

As other people have said, you can probably find cheaper options by using a BBQ cover (places like Argos should have something). However, I was recommended the Greenwich cover by several members of my local society (Ilkeston & District AS), so I took their advice.
