EQ Mount and scope

For sale is my ATM Pillow Block mount and 6" f12 Istar Achromat refractor with extras.
Built in 2015-16, here is the mount build thread:

https://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/...d.php?t=139694

Mount includes:
The Pier
AWR hand control
100 amp hour battery
240v-12v transformer
Argo Navis DSC with encoders and all cables.
Extra 5kg counterweights x2
A bunch of high quality SS Dome nuts to replace the cheap bunnings dome nuts...never got around to do that job.

Telescope includes:
Rigelsystem electric focuser
70x900mm 'guidescope'
All the tube rings with sliding counterweights.
Dew heaters and dew controller.

Price for mount only $2000.00

6" scope $500 the lot.

This is pick up only as its heavy but does break down to several pieces for 'ease' of transport. Any prospective buyer need to know how to put it back together again. At a guess the mount is in the Losmandy Titan class...will take a lot of weight. I built the mount for an 8" refractor that didn't eventuate.
