iOptron iEQ45 (2013) w/ tripod & case

Selling my 2013 iOptron Ieq45 Goto Equatorial Mount due to upgrade.

This mount has a payload capacity of 45lbs (20kg) given it's light weight of 12kg makes it perfect for field use. Very user friendly GOTO hand controller with builtin GPS. Servo motor with belt driven worms.

The mount comes with:
- 2" Stainless steel tripod
- Waterproof carry case for the head
- Losmandy D (fitted) and Vixen style clamps
- 1x 5kg counterweight (additional counterweight available at additional cost)
- All cables (RS232, USB-RS232, AC adapter, 12V Cable etc)
- 8407 Goto Hand controller
- Polemaster adapter (no polemaster camera)
- Polar alignment guidecamera attachment (see below/photos)

Upgrades include:
- iOptron High precision RA worm upgrade
- ABEC 7 angular contact bearings for the RA axis
- Custom RA and DEC belt tension idler pulley (see photos)
- 3D printed polar scope adapter with C mount CCTV lens to allow the attachment of a guidescope camera to assist polar aligning (if you do not have a polemaster).

Price: $1,100
Located in Lysterfield (SE Melbourne), Victoria.
Prefer local pick up due to weight but can post at buyers expense.

Thanks
David

I wish you were in Sydney as I would offer you a little less and take it off your hands. I love the engineering approach to these mounts it seems so superior to a "normal" eq mount.
