SOLD: Thanks Jim.
Circumstances have changed, moving to a smaller place. Mount was recently purchased (about 2 months ago), and used exactly twice. It’s in perfect condition, and will ship in original boxes and packaging. I hate to see it go.
The EQ-6 has an advertised load capacity of between 40 & 55 lbs. It comes supplied with 3" setting circles, azimuth fine adjustment, polar alignment scope, and two 11 lb counterweights. The tripod has beefy 2" diameter stainless steel adjustable tube legs with a spreader bar/accessory plate.
The extremely quiet built-in drives (RA & Dec), are powered by 12 volts DC, or the included battery pack (8 D-cell batteries not included). The hand controller allows rates of 2x, 8x, and 16x over sidereal rate, and has a Northern Hemisphere/Off/Southern Hemisphere switch.
The saddle plate is the universal "Vixen" design. I did not receive a dovetail bar, so you won’t either! See the current Sky and Telescope for a review.
Price is firm, as I’m already taking a loss. No trades or part trades. I’ll accept bank money orders, cashier’s checks, and PayPal (for immediate shipment), if buyer is willing to pay PayPal fees of 2.9% + 30 cents.
Although the mount is quite manageable, it is heavy, so shipping will most likely be between $35 to $85, unless buyer is willing to pick up in eastern Washington state. Buyer to pay actual shipping and insurance.
Thanks for looking,
