EQ6-R tripod

Recommended Posts

Hi - very stupidly let the husband try to loosen a leg for me - needless to say, he’s stuffed them up. Now can’t extend / retract, the legs to get level......... ?

I do have a set of HEQ5 legs, so question is - can I put EQ6-R mount, on HEQ5 legs ??

Using a 200 PDS, with guide & cameras. So not pushing the weight side too much...........but it is for imaging.

thanks ?

Dunno about the HEQ5 legs, but unless you've chronically damaged the tubes you should be able to wind out the clamp and pull the leg out! I think the legs for the HEQ5 are probably similar, though - if memory serves the mounting plate is very similar.

Thanks - it lives outside, Will a heavy duty winter cover. Leg bolts have completely seized .

I’ll give it a go & see.
