I'm looking at consolidating tripods to an UNI-18. I want to mount an AZ-EQ5 (that I already own) on an HEQ5 head on a Berlebach UNI-18. And then I'll use a 3/8" adapter to switch back and forth between the AZ-EQ5 and M2C, for Goto and manual observing. 

 

So would an AZ-EQ5 fit on an HEQ5 head? 

 

CS,

Rob

I have the AZ-EQ5 mount.

Skywatcher shows that the SkyWatcher tripod head for EQ3 is compatible with the following mounts:

EQ3, EQM35, EQ5, HEQ5, AZ-EQ5, AZ4

 

Which implies that the HEQ5 head will fit your AZ-EQ5 mount
