Hello,

 

I am still a beginner in astronomy and astrophotography and I own a TAL 200K telescope.

The price for new mounts HEQ5 Pro or EQ6 exceed my budget and I am hoping to find a cheaper GOTO alternative or a second hand.

Could someone tell me if there are any websites where I can find a second hand HEQ5 Pro or EQ6 mount, please?

I am located in Belgium but I can drive to some other location, if not too far.

 

Thanks in advance,

Cristian

Thank you, Nick. But these links point to forums and not to buy / sell websites.

Of course you need to register if you want to do any buying and selling, but each of those forums has a classifieds section smile.gif

 

EDIT: In mainland Europe, there aren't any such sites to the best of my knowledge (like for example the UK has UK AstroBuySell).

 

I would not recommend buying from the UK, as you will be slapped with VAT and import duties on arrival to Belgium.
