Finally, finally bought a new mount.


Recommended Posts

I have finally bought myself a NEQ6 today after putting it off for months due to other commitments. I initially sold my EQ5 to upgrade but had to use the money else where. 

So now I can finally start observing and imaging again this time with auto guiding so I am really looking forward as to what I can achieve with this mount. I got a nice QHY5 in the deal with the mount. 

It has been a long day travelling a 5 hour round trip but totally worth it. 

Happy day!  :grin:

Looks good Rob, I see its got the Astro development upgrade bolts which is a very good thing to have :)

If you jiggle both axis with the locks on, you will be able to see how much backlash there is? If there's a lot I can talk you through how to adjust it out. I know these mounts literally inside and out now :)
