Mount has been sold. Thanks for looking.
I have for sale my Celestron CI-700 Equatorial Mount. (Scopes not included.) My price has been reduced because of the release of the new Celestron CGE mount ($3000). This has replaced the CI-700 and therefore it's price has been reduced.
I purchased the mount new about 7 months ago. The mount is in perfect condition both mechanically and aestheticaly. It also has about 5 months left on it's warranty. I use the mount with a C-11 OTA and a piggybacked TV-101 for astrophotography. It performes beautifully! I am selling to finance a new GOTO GEM. I have had the tripod professionally upgraded with Al's Astro adjustable leg kit ($190). This enables leveling of the tripod on uneven terrain. Here are some of the mount's specifications and features...
