This is Celestron cg3 mount suitable for any telescope tube with vixen dovetail.
Load capacity is approximately up to 4 kg
Condition is used, but in very good shape.
It's comcompletely with 3d printed levelling plate, under tray for accessories, slow motion and locking knobs.
Mount was completely stripped down, removed factory sticky grease and applied proper grease where applicable.
I can post it by Hermes or DPD if you are happy to pay for postage.
I'll accept PayPal as family/friends or commercial if you'll pay the 3% fee.
I looking for a polar scope for my eq3 or HEQ5 mount
I've had a Star Adventure since October, but haven't had a chance to use it until Friday night (work and weather limitations). Also, I don't have a car at the moment, so I'm quite limited to how far I can travel on my e-bike and get to dark skies.
Ran into a couple of issues, 1. my Nikon Z50 is limited to 30 second exposures and the wifi connection to my phone so I could use qDslrDashboard was terrible (now found out I can tether directly to the phone via USB, yey!). 2. my lens started to fog (a warmer was ordered as soon as I got home and has now arrived).
Anyway, what I did manage to get was a nice shot of the Orion Nebula.
Nikon Z50. 50-250mm kit lens @250mm. F6.3. 26x30s exposures. ISO640. Sky Watcher Star Adventure.
I want to try the Horsehead or Rosette next, not sure how well the unmodded Z50 is with HA though.
Made a new video, this is a Astro Systeme Austria specific video, which has direct driven servo motors.
To get them to perform perfectly and be able to track unguided, you have to tune theese motors.
I made a quick video of how the three different methods is working in the "Autoslew" software to run theese mounts.
Maybe this method of tuning mount motors is related to other brands which has direct driven mounts?

Hi All, I have a Star Adventurer but have had problems getting consistent results even when setup was as near to perfect as I can do, (this was focussed on due to this issue).
It took me a while to find out that when the eyepiece is is extended for focus it is very loose, so loose the graticule moves indipendantly of Polaris / background.
I have asked the supplier, "Astroshop.eu", to highlight the problem and ask for their feedback.
Question to Astroshop.eu:
I have had a constant issue with Polar Alignment. As I cannot use it so often, (visibility), it has taken me a while to identify the problem. When I adjust the polar scope focus the eyepiece is so loose that the graticule moves a lot laterally in all directions in the view. I can send a video but I think you can understand what I am saying.
Basically I must be getting something very wrong or there is an issue with the product. The thread is so loose it is entirely unstable.
Please advise what we can do about this.
Answer from Astroshop.eu:
1. "I'am sorry to say, but this is very normal and does not affect the function of the star adventurer".
2. "My collegue confirmed that this will not be a issue".
I have subsequently asked the guy to ask his colleague again, but some time has gone past and I have no further reply.
I think it is clear enough from the text and would really appreciate some experienced answer, any comments very welcome.
Additionally here are the videos I have sent to show them, (hand holding the phone so a bit shaky but issue can be seen. I'd really appreciate some help before I spend too much time again tring to get it to work, for reference the eyepiece wobble is around 3.5 graticule intervals, so not small. As it's full of grease it took me a long time to see how poor quality the Polarscope build quality is.
Thank you all, Andy
