As shown in the photos, this Losmandy G-11 is in excellent condition. It is clean with only normal use shown on the tripod legs. Included are some home-made plywood pads to keep the feet from sinking into grass. It was upgraded to Gemini Level 1 and then later to Level 3 last year. I have only used it for visual and webcam imaging. When polar aligned, it tracked adequately for my needs. It includes most of the available upgrades which make setting up and operating much easier than the standard equipment:
· Clutch Knob Set (CKS)
· Leg Clamp Lever Set (LCLS)
· Tripod Knob Set (TKS)
Also included are:
· Aluminum Servo Motor Covers
· Polar Scope (This was purchased separately on Astromart. It has a ding on the ocular end but is accurate. The reticle is in good shape. I never purchased the commercial illuminator. I will include a home-made illuminator with batteries that worked well for me)
· Standard counterweight shaft and 1-21# and 2-11# counterweights.
· Power cord w/ battery socket plug
As shown in the photos, the Hand Controller is the latest Deluxe controller with an LED display at the top. The Gemini System Control Box is the model that also has the same LED display at the top and uses a two-contact power connection rather than DIN plugs as shown on the current Gemini web site.
Purchased new with the upgrades and Level 3 Gemini chip, it adds up to about $4000 + shipping. I will sell it for $2950, and will drive a reasonable distance from Houston to deliver it to save having to pack and ship it. Otherwise, buyer pays actual packaging, shipping, and insurance cost, by UPS.
I will accept Cashier’s Check or Money Orders, or PayPal (+3%).
Thanks for looking,
