Up for sale is a nice condition used EQ6-R Pro mount. I have been using this mount with my ~43lb C11 setup and performance has been great. Regularly guiding in the 0.3-0.5" RMS range when properly balanced on good seeing nights. I have upgraded to a heavier setup and a higher capacity mount, so I am selling my EQ6-R. At this time, looking for local sales near 28105, Charlotte, NC. Willing to drive a reasonably distance to meet a potential buyer. 

What's included:

  • EQ6-R mount body
  • Polemaster and EQ6 mounting bracket
  • 2 original 10 pound counterweights
  • 1 additional 20 pound counterweight
  • Counterweight extension
  • Original tripod
  • Original shipping foam for mount body, however I do not have the box or packaging for counterweights. 
  • Power cable 
  • Hand controller
  • Tripod spreader (see note below)

One note is that I had been using this on a mounted pier recently, and I had cut the main bolt that attaches the mount to the tripod in half to fit the pier. However, in doing so, if you want to use the tripod spreader, you'll need another bolt to replace the one that comes with it to mount the tripod spreader.

Apart from that, the mount is in very good condition with typical wear you might expect from dew, like tarnishing of the adjustment bolts. Please let me know if you have any questions.
