GOTO mounts

I find the cost of the Skywatcher Goto upgade kits a rip off.For the EQ5 its £299,since this is "old" technology and the workings are nothing really special,its over valued.
Maybe Skywatcher should drop the price or someone brings onto the market their own kit at a much lower price tag.I can buy the EQ3 PRO at £385 all in which will carry my scope very well.
