There is a company in Perth called Astronomy Academy who did hyper tuning of mounts. I sent an email 8 months ago to get a price to hypertune my EQ6-R pro mount and never got a reply after a second follow up
If you can use a screwdriver and spanner maybe buy a Rowan belt Mod kit from the UK and do it yourself. Iím sure a lot of folk on IIS have done the Rowan belt mod with good results and can guide you through it
Another good site regarding hyper tuning mounts is Astro Baby
