Keep your StellarDrive™ Performance Mount in top form with NEW Our Tune-up 60 program for your trusty steed. It's a brand new interim tuning service based on our highly acclaimed and proven Bonneville Build Type v6.3.x. This is supported with a 2 year RTB warranty.
If you already have a StellarDrive mount from us since 2017, then this will refresh your mount and bring it up to the latest build spec we use in our mount tuning. We estimate depending on use, your mount will not need servicing for 3-5 years, based on our tests and data. So, we won't be seeing you until 2020 at the earliest... ;-)
This is only available for:
What's Included in Tune-up 60:
Full assessment of your mount. You will be notified if there is any repairs or parts required before we proceed.
Complete inspection of the mount head unit.
Complete dismantling of the mount head unit.
Inspection and cleaning of each part, then degreased, the 6 StellarDrive™ axis bearings are also ultrasonically cleaned and dried, then retreated, and spin-tested.
The Hybrid-Ceramics worm-gears will be checked, but being 4x harder than steel should last the life of your mount.
StellarDrive™ SPX worm-gears cleaned and inspected.
Brass Crown surfaces checked for any wear or damage.
Rowan Kit Belts changed for new items
Reassembly to Bonneville Build type 6.3.x to your mount model, using our model specific lubricant package, which should last up to five years in normal use.

Adjustment of backlash settings in RA and DEC to optimal tolerances, using precise engineering practices and our test rig
Firmware update of Handset/Motor Firmware (as required).

What's not included:
This is a Hypertune refresh service. Your mount is specifically calibrated, tested and run in to optimise the mount beyond factory parameters to StellarDrive™ standard. It is designed to restore or maintain the mounts performance. This Tune-up 60 covers our StellarDrive™5, 6, 6R or 6GT model, but not the StellarDrive 8/8C as they need a different maintenance program.
For your first major service, we do recommend a full StellarDrive™ tune for your HEQ5/NEQ6 mount, which includes treated Hybrid-Ceramic worm-gear bearings, our StellarDrive™RX axis bearing set and full mount optimisation, plus a long 2 year warranty!
The two year Return to base warranty covers work done and any new parts fitted. It does not cover existing items such as handset, motherboards, cables. It does not cover wear and tear on the mount. The warranty is non-transferable.
Two or Three-way Courier service
You can save time and hassle too, by using our three way collection and return service anywhere in the UK for just £29. We send you out a box with packaging, then arrange collection at a convenient time for yourself & send you a label, and return the mount when completed.
Or just £20 for the Two way (we collect from you and return when completed).
