I have just reserved a Tak NJP mount. Consequently, I will have to sell this excellent mount. I am motivated to sell, and so you will find the price very competitive.
This is a complete Celestron/Losmandy G-11,purchased new in 1996 w/upgrades. Accepts standard dovetail plates. Features include , PEC drive correction, 4 quartz tracking rates, polar axis finder, telescoping legs. The mount is DSC ready! Just add your box (many brands are compatible) to shelf below console & your connecting cable (Jims Mobile-$15) to the supplied standard 2160 step encoders that were fitted to stainless brackets, which connect by thumbscrews to aluminum mounting blocks, bolted to the mount, not velcroed on. Dec & RA gears were purchased from Jim's Mobile. I found the DSCs to be quite accurate locating objects with this solid arrangement. Also included is hard plastic, padded, footlocker sized case which the eq head & column stow in well. Also a cardboard crate to store a move the tipod legs in easily.
The saddle plate and one 22lb counterweight are included w/ the mount as seen in the picture. Instructions manual is also included.
