The Do-It-Yourself HyperTune® Kit, allows you to service and upgrade your Orion Atlas/EQ-6 mount yourself.
We have collected all of the parts and tools necessary for you to perform a similar upgrade service as performed in the HyperTune ® Standard service. Plan on the entire process taking at least 2 to 3 hours, so be prepared to work for a little while.

While you watch the step by step video, we point out common repairs that have to be done, and adjustments that will help your Atlas/EQ-6 mount reach their peak performance. When you are finished, you will have a smooth working mount that will provide you with wonderful, less stressful, nights of enjoying the night-time skies.

In addition, you will have a complete set of tools left over for later use.
The included DVD video is a complete guide for taking your mount apart, adjusting, and servicing all internal components, and putting it all back together.

  • Complete ceramic hybrid worm bearing set
  • Complete PTFE bearing set
  • Set of all mount hex wrench sizes
  • Screwdriver
  • Selected sandpapers

  • Access to electronic versions of detailed photo breakdown of mount and components
