Quick Overview

Rowan Astronomy Kit Upgrade for EQ6 is composed of several parts that let you convert the gear transmission of the EQ6 mount in a belt transmission. This upgrade will improve the mount tracking and precision, reducing backlash and thus also improving precision of the autoguider corrections.

This kit includes user manual (in English) for the mount modification.

This kit replaces the factory spur gear drive train with timing belts. The pulley modification reduces the spur gear errors that are typical and therefore reduces tracking errors. The belts also make slewing much quiter eliminating the 'grinding' noise that the standard spur gears produce. The pulley ratio is the same as the factory gears.This means the Synscan hand controller is unaffected by this upgrade. All Synscan functions will operate as before.

The kit uses a 6mm wide belt and does not require the slot in the mount casting to be modified as required by some kits. The pulleys are design and produced specifically for the NEQ6 mount and manufactured to a high precision. We don't take stock parts and modify them to fit. The kit comes with an installation manual in English.
