I'm floating a trial balloon here. I have a Vixen GP DX with the SkySensor 2000, illuminated polar scope and two 8.5 lb. counter weights. I'm moving to a larger OTA and would really like to do imaging work so I need more payload capacity on the mount. The Vixen is in almost new condition.
I am looking to trade for a very good condition, newer model Losmandy GM-11 mount, with polar scope, and the standard dual axis controller. This would be a straight up trade for a GM-11 in like new condition.
Retail for the GPDX is $1,220 and another $1,195 for the SS2K for a total of $2,315. The GM-11 retails for $2,079.
If you want GOTO and don't need the 60 lb. load capacity of the GM-11 then this deal is for you. You can't go wrong with the very portable GPDX which is probably the most copied mount out there.
Thank you for looking.
