Saxon AZ-EQ6

Hey all,

I'm continuing the sell off of equipment so I can save up for a new mount, next up is my Saxon AZ-EQ6. Bought just over a year ago it's been an amazing mount and would guide consistently well. I've never had to adjust the worms or anything else, it just worked right out of the box. It's also one of the new versions with the built in USB port. Everything that's included:

-Mount head and tripod
-4x 5kg counterweights
-Extra saddle for use in AZ mode
-Extension bar
-Shutter cable
-Hand controller
-12v power supply
-SynScan USB Adapter for EQMod

Some notes:

-The Saxon and Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 are the exact same units, just with different paint jobs
-This handled an RC8 at 1600mm with sub arc-second guiding
-Handled a 12inch newt in AZ with no problems
-I've converted the power cable to take a 5.1mm jack like most astro gear
-One of the counterweights didn't arrive with the standard bolt, so I've improvised with a shorter bolt holding in another bolt. It works, but might want to get a proper one at some point.

All up I'm asking for $2200. Pickup in Brunswick, VIC (after lockdown of course), or can post at buyer's expense (keep in mind that counterweights are 20kg alone).

Hi Nial,
Re: Your AZ-EQ6.
I may be interested in this. I am in Melbourne and could pick up.
You say you bought this a year ago. I understand they have a 5 year warranty. Do you have original receipt for warranty purposes?
Cheers.
Chris.

Hey Chris,

I've got the PayPal receipt from the purchase and the correspondance. Not sure if I have the paper laying around but I can check
