|Skywatcher NEQ6, Numerous worthwhile Upgrades|
For sale here is a fully working NEQ6 owned by me from new that has had the following improvements;-
A Modern Astronomy MK II EQ6 Wedge enhancement on the base, this is more rigid and provides an easy azimuth adjustment.
A Geoptik upgrade counter balance bar and 7Kg stainless steel weight, again greater rigidity, longer bar and wider diameter bar for the counter weights.
An extension tube providing additional height for a refractor.
The power input has been augmented by a second socket on which the plug is screwed into place, no loss of power half way through a session, the original socket can be used as an output to power dew heaters or possibly an astro camera.
A Blue tooth adapter unused, to control the mount from your smart phone.
A HiTech astro USB Lead, to control the mount from your computer.
A Serial Lead to upgrade handset software.
A Mains PSU.
A GPS Module (read below carefully).
The Synscan Handset and Mount manuals are included in this listing.
The mount is in full working order and of very good appearance. Inspection in Reading welcome, recommended if you can get here.
The GPS Module has had a repair to the red wire which had broken at the point it disappears into the hand set connector. Half an hours work with a soldering iron and magnifying glass has restored it to working. The back end of the plastic connector was filled with Sikaflex to ensure any strain was shared among all the wires and could not concentrate at one point. Tested and all OK. This connector is a design weak point so I am not offering any guarantees as to longevity but it will work when you receive it and there is no reason it should not last as long as a new one if treated gently.
The Rowan Belt Drive Kit has been sold separately and is no longer available.
I can post this item, it will require 2 parcels each of which will cost about £14.00 by Parcel Force 48. There are other postage options which may be cheaper, I am open to suggestions. There are 2 other options;-
You can either collect it from Reading or we can meet at an intermediate point (max 90 minutes or so drive) for the cost of the fuel. Please note I am retired and can be pretty flexible on distance and timings.
Please provide your postcode when inquiring about delivery options.
I have advertised this mount on eBay for a higher price, the difference being their fees. I make no recommendation as to which to use but you may choose to consider that eBay is a powerful advocate for the buyer in the event of any dispute.
I am also prepared to negotiate on price if you do not require all the options, the GPS Receiver, Bluetooth unit or refractor extension are obvious possibilities and could be sold separately if a suitable offer were made.
Payment by direct bank transfer preferred, PayPal +2.5% and cheque is acceptable though must clear before shipping.
