As everyone knows, Synta makes most of the mounts for Celestron, Meade, Skywatcher and Orion. This is the model between the EQ-5 ( Orion Pro View ) and the EQ-6 ( the Atlas ). It can comfortably support a 25-27lb OTA, but is not much heavier than the Pro View and is much more portable than the Atlas. It is not typically available in the states, so is highly sought. ( This one came from Canada as an educational use import. ) It has been used ten minutes to test the drive motors; the rest of the time it has been in my den. It comes std. with built-in, 3-spd dual drive motors, both hemisphere settings, extended use battery pack ( it's very small ), polar allignment scope and heavy duty tripod with stainless legs. The Orion Pro View sells for $450 ( less shipping ) with the dual drives; the Atlas for$799. I'm asking $375 and we can negotiate shipping. I guarantee this unit to be perfect and in flawless working order ( I just put it in writing ). Pix and specs are available at the web site of skywatchertelescope--a Canadian distributor.
Thanks, Bob Brienzo 281.382.2291
