If you're looking for an ultra-stable, highly accurate platform for big scopes and/or high resolution imaging, this is the one:
- 150# payload capacity
- Periodic error < 5 arc-secs PTV (+/- 2.5 arc-secs)
Why wait two years or pay more for this class of mount?
Breaks down into transportable components: CWT shaft, DEC assembly, RA assembly, semi-pier and tripod legs. Tangent arm in DEC so there's virtually -no- backlash. Includes equatorial head with optional aluminum motor covers, built-in geared encoders, EXHD tripod with two sets of fixed-height legs (short and tall), two CWTs (21# and 31#), Losmandy digital drive system. Photo below, more available on my website (can't list the URL here on Astromart, contact me please).
Asking $5500 OBO. Pickup or will meet within 200 miles of the San Francisco area.
I also have several accessories available including a heavy duty ATA-style case, a massive side-by-side mounting platform, dovetail plates, Meade Magellan DSC, etc. Package deal negotiable.
