  • For Sale SOLD - Skywatcher EQ6 Guided Equatorial Mount

    I am selling my portable guided telescope mount in favour of a more permanent set up.

    Equatorial mounts allow you to track the earths rotation, so that whatever you are viewing/imaging in at night, stays in the field of view.
    This mount is capable of payloads up to 25kg visual, or 18kg for long exposure astrophotography. The mount is easily controlled with the included Synscan hand controller. The controller contains a library of over 13,000 objects, that can be directly selected, or it can take you on a tour of the night sky.

    Included with the mount:
    Power supply (240VAC~12VDC)
    PC connect cable
    Synscan hand controller + cables
    Hypertune spares and "workshop dvd's"
    I probably also have some planetarium software and a few other misc bits somewhere that I can throw in.

    That is a seriously cool looking bita kit.

    So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)

      Its still up for grabs after the usual gumtree shenanigans -"Can I pay in installments?", "I really want it but mum says I can only spend $750".

      Will go to $950 for PSB'ers, any lower and its not really worth selling.
