For Swap - Sky Scan 2001 (EQ3) Mount

Recommended Posts

I picked up an old Helios frac yesterday which came with a Sky Scan 2001 mount (essentially a SW EQ3) that I won’t use as I have a HEQ5 for all my EQ needs. 

Comes with old style Polar Scope, plus 3.5kg and 1.8kg counterweights. 

Unfortuantely doesn’t come with a saddle plate as the tube rings were bolted direct to the mount spacer.png

Does anyone have an Alt/Az Head they fancy swapping?

Update to this - have now purchased the saddle plate and associated paraphernalia to convert to a more user friendly format. 

Would also consider swapping for a small guide scope such as a SW 80ST
