Heq5 pro Mount, Tripod, Weights - Full Kit

Near perfect condition, 2.2yrs old; not used since I purchased here 12months'ish ago & only used lightly prior !

Selling as I was going to use whilst camping, but with carting this along with battery/s, laptop, image & guide scope's, cameras etc is a bit more than I care to deal with when sight-seeing, Lol , so have decided to stick with the Star-Tracker & Dslr whilst campin' !

Includes the whole kit as purchased, everything seen in pics, except the wall, lounge & wall pitcher, Lol,,
Also have both boxes for mount & tripod !
Both counter-weights, power-lead, hand-paddle/controller - firmware 04.37.03

Asking $850 = 35% less than retail

Prefer Pick up and/or split travel within 100-150k from location Gold Coast SE QLD

Glenn - not quite half that mate,,, Payload Capacity 13.7Kg, tho I have seen people push it near 17-18Kg, but it would probably snap in half with 30 odd, ?
Here a link to some details :

Mmmm, Im not sure at the moment JDStellar - I reckon it would be quite expensive from here to Perth ?
Can I suggest you hunt down a transport company, & use these measurements & weights:

Tripod Weight - 5.6 kg, 1.75" steel tripod
Shipping Weight 18+12 kg

Shipping Carton Dimensions:
Tripod -127x24x25 cm3; & Mount 44x44x19 cm3

Im not sure if the 2 x 5Kg counterweights are packed in with the tripod or not, think they are seperate again ?

Pm (Private Message) me if you find something appropriate

Rgrds ...
