Heq5-pro tuned, with Rowan belt mod and case
I have an Heq5-pro, it has been tuned and has the Rowan belt modification done to it. It replaces the spur gears inside with a belt drive system. Much quieter, but more importantly way better tracking and guiding. It mitigates periodic error quite well. I average .50-.80 rms quite consistently (I'll attach some screenshots showing guiding numbers, including a 1000s single exposure, check how round the stars are still after 16min!).

I've got everything it originally came with (counterweights, tripod, controller etc), plus two extra belts and the original gears in case you want to put them back on for some reason? The mount was originally purchased August 2021 and has been well taken care of. I've been using it with a Zenithstar 81 and a Celestron C8, and it performs fantastic.

I'm asking $1800, I'll throw in the Nanuk 930 case I keep it in as well, fits nicely with enough room for some cables and stuff. Here's a breakdown of retail pricing...

Heq5-pro - $2248.70 after tax
Rowan belt mod - $220.02
Nanuk 930 case - $220

Total - $2668.72

So you're looking at around $850 off retail for everything? Let me know if you're interested!
Price: $1,800
