Hers my HEQ5 which is pretty well adapted.

Upgrades include;
ADM Dual Saddle.
Home brew Polar Illuminator Dimmer (zoom in pic).
Astro Developments Alt/Az Bolts.
Index Marks painted gloss red.
Complete strip and tune with upgraded bearings for worm ends and all plastic washers replaced with Delrin.
Phillips screws replaced with allen key headed screws on all external fittings.

Runs like a charm, quiet and smooth - so good I like to take it to bed with me

Thanks. It's pretty portable and light. I can lift and carry the portable pier and mount (without CW) from inside house to back yard. It's lighter than my old Atlas EQ-G I owned several years ago.

Portable and light. I guess we don't think alike. Very nice setup you have!
