Losmandy GM8 with aluminum motor covers, Losmandy polar scope, 2 ea 7# counterweights. The mount is in very good shape and is very smooth and stable; however, there are a few things to know about it:

- The saddle plate is not included; I had upgraded to a G11 saddle, and I'm keeping the saddle, so you'll have to buy one for this mount (I figured that made more sense than me buying one just to sell the mount). I believe they're ~$50 for the GM8 saddle, and $100 for the G11 saddle.

- It has a fixed-leg Losmandy tripod. The legs are 36" long, and tubular; I believe the tripod is more stable than the adjustable GM8 tripod, but you don't have the ability to adjust the height.

- The illuminator on the polar scope is not working; it should be easy to fix, and it works fine without the illuminator, but there you go.

- There are a few cosmetic nicks in the paint in areas like the weights and the top of the tripod.

Pictures available if necessary. This is a great, solid mount in need of a good home. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks,

Paul
