EQ6-R Pro & Altair Skyshed pier adaptor issue.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. 

I upgraded my HEQ5 for and EQ6-R Pro today, but am having problems connecting the mount head to my Altair Skyshed Pier. 

The HEQ5 adaptor plate doesn’t fit the base of the EQ6-R, and it just rests on top leaving a gap of about 5mm between adaptor and mount. 

It looks like the adaptor recess for the mount to sit in isnt quite large enough in diameter. (Photos attached)

Ive contacted Altair, and am waiting for a reply. 

Does anyone know of an adaptor which may fit, or another workaround?


Cheers. Matt.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I hadn't even considered getting the old adaptor re-milled. Mark huge thanks for the offer :)

I did briefly explore making one from a car brake disc, as some people seem to have done that with some success.

Unfortunately I've already bitten the bullet and have a new one on the way from RVO. 

I'll get the old one on the SGL classifieds, ABS etc to try and recoup some cash ;)
