COMPLETED - Sky watcher AZ EQ6-GT mount / tripod for sale

Recommended Posts

A very lightly used AZ EQ6-GT mount and tripod for sale. The mount is approx 3 years old and I am the second owner. It is in exceptional condition and as stated has been very lightly used by myself and previous owner.

Reason I am selling, due to a change of job and working away significant parts of the week / month I have no time to indulge in the hobby at the moment.

The mount comes with all the usual items,

Mount and tripod, hand controller, cigarette power lead, eqmod usb lead, manual.

Also included in the sale is the ADM losmandy / Vixen saddle and the regulated power supply - this one as per FLO website - Nevada PS-08 PSU

Price is £995 ovno for everything.

I have the box for the mount with original packaging but not the tripod, hence this is pick up only or can travel and meet half way by arrangement - I travel extensively so I'm sure something can be arranged.

I accept cash, cheques and bank transfer (which is easiest to be honest). Paypal if the buyer pays the fees.

The mount is currently in my observatory and can be seen working if you wish.

The ES102 pictured is also for sale in the next ad!

Thanks for reading and if you have questions please PM me and we can discuss in more detail.

Neil.

      Hi,
      I've tried to research this, but really struggled because of the amount of choice available in that area. We're looking for a really good tripod to use for imaging with a Canon 5D mark iv, Skywatcher Adventurer and a series of DSLR lenses from 12mm to 200mm focal length. We might be tempted going for a heavier scope later on depending on the success we get with our current equipment, so it's worth bearing that in mind regarding upgradability.
      We are going to travel to Abisko by plane and we are going to carry the kit around while trekking (hence the Adventurer rather than a full size mount), so weight is important but we're not necessarily looking for the lightest tripod: something around 10kg or more would definitely be too heavy, but something around 3kg would still be acceptable, although lighter is better. However stability is really the most important feature we're looking for.
      Subjectively, I'm quite keen on a spread stopper because I think it would make the structure more sturdy, but if a tripod is renowned for being stiff and sturdy without a spread stopper, then that's probably good enough.
      I'm also quite keen on being able to fit a levelling bowl such as Manfrotto 500BALL 100mm Bowl with Knob in order to be able to use a large round spirit level for easier and more accurate levelling, as I want the polar alignment to be as good as possible in order to attempt imaging with lenses of 200mm and maybe a little bit more.
      Because of this and in order to minimise flex, I would prefer a tripod that can house a levelling bowl directly instead of a standard tripod with a central column to which a levelling head would have to be attached. The logic I have there is that I think it makes sense to minimise the number elements and connections as they introduce flex.
      Budget wise, we're not made of money but we'll get what we need to get: we don't want the tripod to be the weakest link.
      While we're at it, advice on a good tripod head (between the Adventurer and camera, e.g. for time lapses) would also be appreciated. I've read that a geared head was probably the best option there (again, we favour stability over anything else).
      Thanks in advance

      I am going to upgrade to the skywatcher 250/1200 pds telescope and i can't decide which mount i should get.
      The main (only) purpose is astrophtography and i am considering either the eq6-r- pro or the cem60
      The cem60 can carry more weight but is also more expensive, my inner debate now is about if it is worth it
      What's you take on it?

      Hey guys! Its me again... I know what you are thinking 😛 there is not such thing as a cheap mount for astrophotography...and i agree with you! I just want to know if there are any significantly cheap mounts (under 100 pounds)  for my skywatcher heritage 130p that can give me maybe 15-30 sec exposure time max. Thanks

      Is there a tripod extension tube that works on the SW EQ5/HEQ5 tripod and is shorter than 40cm/16" (the length of the stock SW tube)?
