This kit replaces the HEQ5 Pro's spur gear drive train with timing belts.
Reduces spur gear errors, which reduces tracking errors.
Slewing is much quieter - the 'grinding' noise that regular spur gears produce is significantly reduced.
The pulley ratio is the same as the factory gears so Sky Watcher SynScan hand controller functions are unaffected. All gain and no loss :-)
HEQ5 Belt Kit comprises of:
2 x 47 tooth pulleys. 2 x 9 tooth pulleys.
2 x timing belts.
2 x intermediate rollers. 2 x 5mm mounting shafts.
1x 8mm white acrylic cover spacer + 6 stainless fixings.
