This setup consists of the following:
CG-5 head only (no tripod)
2 grey anodized aluminum knobs
1 11 lbs. counterweight
1 6.5 lbs. homemade counterweight (better action than 11#)
original Skysensor with motors and manual.
extra dovetail bar
Anyone looking for a tracking (RA motor drive) CG-5 head may consider this with the bonus of Goto for messier, NGC lists.
This mount has been modified in various ways. The worm rubber O rings have been replaced with less flexible washers. The vixen mt-1 motors have better clutches and stronger 12v. motors than Synta. It has been cleaned and relubed. It works very well and has about a 20 pound capacity.
I will be keeping the adapter that connects the head to the 4 inch pier. I got it from Ken's rings & things.
The SkySensor is primitive as computers go, but it works! It tracks in sidereal time only and the planets are not in the database.
One other customization of the head is the ability to raise the azmiuth all the way to allow a manual alt-az head as in the Giro mount. The photo shows the modified stop that allows this.
$300, plus 1/2 UPS ground shipping in CONUS. Money Order or Cashier's check, Please.
Thanks for looking.
