I have this EQ6 Pro Tripod for sale
its been sat in my garage for the last couple of years just collecting dust, so might as well go to someone who could put it to good use,
There are a couple of marks on it but nothing significant, the spreader plate does have a small chip which can be seen in the picture, IT DOES NOT COME WITH Azimuth bolt.
not sure what these are worth? So how about £70 + postage
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
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?

I have a Skywatcher Star Adventurer 2i. I want to upgrade my imaging kit, and saw a YouTube video where someone had the following on a star adventurer. I looked up their weights and got the following:
ZWO ASI1600MM -410g
WO Spacecat 51 -1400g
7x Filter Wheel -400g
ZWO ASI120MM -60g
ZWO 30 F4 -500g
ZWO ASIAir -N/A as not attached
WO Cat Saddlebar -140g
Dec Bracket -550g
Which amounts to ~3.6kg, and with the counterweight totals ~4.6kg which is just shy of the payload limit.
I am thinking about using the Zenithstar 61, which weights 2.2kg with a Saddlebar and dovetail, and replacing the 30 F4 with the WO UniGuide which is 240g, and adding the WO FLAT61R at 270g.
This makes a total payload weight of ~4.2kg. Adding the counterweight, which would likely need to be 2kg to balance brings the total weight to 6.2kg.
Now, I do not know if the advertised payload weight of 5kg includes the counterweight or not. Would this setup be too heavy?
