The Milwaukee Astronomical Society bought a Sky-watcher EQ6 SynScan mount last summer but we only needed the equatorial head. So what I have left to sell is the brand new tripod, it has only been out of its box to take the photos so it is in the best condition possible.
This is a sturdy tripod with 2” diameter stainless steel legs. The weight of the equatorial mount including counter weights is 57lbs. The mount is rated to carry 40lbs, so this tripod can at least handle 97lbs. The height of the tripod is adjustable from 35.4” to 57.9” and the tripod alone weighs 16.5lbs. A leg spreader that holds 1.25” and 2” eyepieces is also included.
I have been unable to find the tripod alone sold in the U.S., but I was able to find prices for the tripod alone in the U.K., which is £145, or $182. The asking price for this tripod is $150 plus actual shipping cost from zip code 53045. If using PayPal, I’ll cover the fee.

Clear skies,
