I am selling my beloved Losmandy HGM-200 German Equatorial Mount (tripod not included). This is a superbly engineered instrument in perfect condition, which performs excellently for astro-photography and CCD imaging (as well as visual). Tracking is smooth with very low periodic error. The mount is ideal for an observatory or can be assembled easily in the field.

This mount is capable of carrying a massive 150 pounds, and is in a class of it's own.

Asking $5,500 plus shipping, serious offers welcome. Please Email me for images taken with this system and for more information.

Thanks for looking

David Churchill
