Pics added: Belt modded EQ6 plus pier

I have upgraded my mount, so selling my trusty EQ6.
  • It has been belted modded, has an ADM dual Vixen/Losmandy saddle.
  • Comes with 2 counter weights, CW extension bar.
  • Has a solid pier with an extension pillar
  • See the build here http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/s...d.php?t=136618
  • Plus 3 EQDIR connectors: long cable, short home made cable plus a homemade blue tooth module.
$1500 for the lot. Pick up Melbourne or delivery at buyer's cost (I do NOT have boxes).

More photos later.

DM me if you are keen.

Thanks for looking
Bo

Ok, photos added finally.
A couple of disclosures:
1. there is a stripped bolt in the dec housing cover, but it does not affect the mount's performance.
2. the mount is in fair used condition, given its age. A couple of the tripod legs are slightly dented from previous owner over tightening of the retaining nut lever and require a bit of wriggle to extend them out.

I forgot to mention I will throw in a padded bag, no foam cut outs, you can get them easily via Clarks Rubber or similar. I also found the original puck if you want it.

The pier plus the extension pillar stand at 115cm tall as per photo.

The guide graph is dated Nov 2017.

Cheers
Bo
