COMPLETED - Mount Handsets

Recommended Posts

Having a clearout and decided to get rid of the handsets that I have lying around not doing much

First up is a SynScan handset that came with my Skywatcher EQ6R-Pro.  Am not sure what version it is as have never used it (always computer control my mount).  Looking for £75 for this one and that includes P&P too

Next up is the NexStar handset that came with my Celestron AVX.  Again, not sure on the version that this is running, but can confirm that the handset does (did) work the last time that I had it out.  This one is £50 inclusive the good old P&P

Both have cables to connect into the mount too

Some photos of the two handsets might be useful to let prospective purchasers identify them.

Ah....didn't put up any as was under the thinking that most people would either know what they where or Google them.

Will take some this evening when I get home for clarity 🙂

Skywatcher Handset.  Black cable is for connection to the mount and the grey cable is for connecting handset to PC

Celestron Handset.  Black cable for connecting handset to mount and grey cable for connecting handset to PC.  This also has a serial to USB dongle attached to it.  Not looking to sell the dongle on its own.  Will go with which ever handset sells first........the race is on.

It was working when I last used it, but I don’t have a Celeste ok mount any more, so can’t check at present.
