Previous sale fell through, so here's another chance to get a good mount for that 2nd scope...

Stock CG-5 mount. 2 years old, used a few dozen times, quite smooth. Comes with one 11 lb counterweight, has additional mounting block that could replace the dovetail on some scopes. Has custom foam lined packing box--great for protecting the mount in your car. Has a few cosmetic-only scratches on the counterweight bar and on the paint of the counterweight and main mount body. All plastic parts & knobs in perfect condition. Comes with mount instructions from Celestron G-8. Also includes Celestron aluminum tripod with tray & spreader. Original wrench set included. Tripod legs have been filled with expanding polyurethane foam. Additional screw band-clamps added to the top of each extendable leg for extra stiffness. Simple fittings added to the bottom of each leg for weights (I bungeed 6 lb scuba weights to each leg). Weights not included. 3 Home-Depot style (plastic & rubber) vibration isolation pads for each leg. Altogether a much improved tripod, good for a smaller refractor or medium reflector. ($199 + ~36 lbs shipping)

Brand new AlsAstro red-oak leg-locker stabilizer complete with extended mount handscrew. Best single improvement you can make on these tripods. ($39 + ~2 lbs shipping)

Buy both for $230 + shipping. Here's a great mount for that second scope! Non-credit card PayPal, money orders, certified checks. Personal checks held till they clear.
