Also for sale is the observatory class EM-500. It comes with three counterweights, the Optical Guidence Systems Quadrant Engineering Instruments Coordinate III Portable goto drive system with alpha numeric keypad, a Marine deep cycle 12 Volt battery, RS port connections for use on home computers, the EM-500 observatory pier (has been repainted silver for protection against weather), custom built massive wheelie bar assembly with inflatable castor wheels and trailer jacks for leveling, a 100 page manual written by OGS for the goto system, an entire professional set of allen wrenches and nuts and bolts, spare connection wires, and a Pro Tuff Bin case which will house the eq. head only. This is a very, very serious mount for professional duities. It will hold about 125lbs. visually and about 95lbs. photographically. $9,500. I will not trade and none of these items are seperable.
Again, I highly urge the buyer to meet me somewhere to pick this up. Shipping this mount will easily cost over $400. And shipping objects like this is not impossible, but it may not be cost effective. I am willing to drive up to 600 miles the first 300 miles free. After that you'll have to cover my transportation cost.
You may call from 11am-4am on my home phone (509)-891-5453 or my cell (509) 954-7899 and ask all the questions you wish. I have multitudes of photos of this setup upon request. Very serious inquiries only.
