Celestron CI700 with Advanced Astro Master DSC kit installed (no computer included).
This is a used and abused field mount, not one of those "sissy" hiding in the observatory types. The counterweight shaft is scratched up as well as the tripod. The anodizing is 17 different shades of purple from using it in the sun. The control panel is so faded you can barely read it. There are numerous paint chips and rust spots on the 22, 23, 24, 25, pound counterweight (weight of CW depends on who you ask, it's the one that came with the CM1100). However the mechanical function is excellent. I've taken the mount apart yearly to clean and lube, (the bearing retainer nuts are beat up to testify to that). Tracks very well when polar aligned pretty close. Solar tracking rate works excellent, I could set the Maxscope up in the morning and come back in the afternoon and the sun would still be in the 25mm Cemax, with a BF5 no less! A good utility mount for up to the 12" Meade, I know they sold a 14" on these but I piggybacked a 4" refractor on a C11 which weighed less than a C14 and it was barely able to handle it. So for good solid stable use I wouldn't load it over 45#.
Asking $800 or best offer, you get to pick up the shipping on this heavy beast (est $100, ups ground).
(Buyer gets first crack at NGC MAX DSC computer)
This poor ol' mount has been replaced by a G11 Gemini.


**SOLD** thanks Jake
