Fits EQ6, NEQ6, NEQ6 Pro and Orion Atlas EQ-G computerised goto mounts.

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 quieter 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.

Optional Bearing Ring Retainer Removal ToolAn optional stainless steel NEQ6 Bearing Ring Retainer Removal Tool is available to allow the worm shaft bearing retaining rings to be more easily removed.
