NEQ6 Pro mount

For sale is my ultra reliable NEQ6 Pro mount. Excellent condition. It doesn't have super low periodic error, but it is absolutely free from any transfer gear/bearing glitches and it is very smooth, easy to autoguide (see provided periodic error analysis graphs). It was never abused, always kept in its case, it never never saw likes of 10 or 12 inch Newtonians (like many people do). Usually carried my 102mm f/7 APO astrograph and ocassionaly saw a C11 for planetary imaging. Gotos are spot on, and properly loaded (east heavy) it shows no backlash and will guide flawlessly.
Comes with extra long DB9 extension cord so hand control can be held quite a distance away from it, or it can be used for EQ-DIR/EQ-MOD. Saddle accepts both Vixen and Losmandy D plates. Two standard counterweights. Tripod is nearly brand new (head was usually pier mounted for Heathcote trips).

Price $1250 plus postage, pick up preferred. I can meet half way within 300km from Melbourne.

Now available nationally, will post if required. Head should be safe in its tough case, legs will be bubble wrapped together with counterweights (still have styrofoam moldings for both head and c/w).
Some recent images using this mount. 100% as well as 400% (!) crops of star field showing excellent autoguiding results. Typically guide errors are well into seeing fluctuations.
