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.

      I looking for a polar scope for my eq3 or HEQ5 mount
    • By Corpze
      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? 

      Best regards / Daniel

      Hi,
       
      So just today i got my new EQ3 mount and tripod delivered.
      Brought it out, balanced it leveled it etc etc.
      So i polar aligned it,  and selected 2 Star Alignment.
      1st star to align to: Betelgeuse.
      As soon as i hit confirm align the motors kick in but as soon as the mount starts to rotate the motors stop and the hand controller resets itself immediatly and starts initializing all over again.
      I discovered that moving Ra on its own works just fine as does moving Dec on its own but whenever i press for example the left and Up arrows at the same time the mount stops and the hand controller resets.
      Could this just be a problem with power draw? The Synpro box takes 12V DC and is supplied by a 12V DC car outlet type power source. However i changed this to a 3 Pin UK 12V 1A DC & AC plug.
       
      Im hoping the power supply is the issue and not something else.
