Celestron 6” achromatic refractor on a LXD 55 GEM with Autostar.

cradle ring assembly
JMI Motofocus and controller (brand new)
EP holders for 2” and 1.25” EP
Full aperture Bader solar filter (I made this myself)
9x50 finder scope
1.25” Celestron contrast booster filter
All scope and finder caps.
Mount has:
2 Autostar controllers and 1 Autostar handbook
2 counterweights
New, longer altitude micro-control bolts
RA/DEC motors and gears have been tuned and adjusted so little to no backlash or slippage.
Battery pack (takes D-cell batteries)
Operating instructions for scope: original so well thumbed through and dog-eared!
Spray paint for mount
Carrying case for mount (holds mount head and cw shaft only)

The telescope is the Celestron 6” f/8 achromatic refractor with pristine optics. No marks of any kind (that I can see) on the OTA. Beautiful and sleek. This mount is a proven performer. Obviously, there are cosmetic chips and dings in the paint on the mount as it was heavily used 3-4 times per week in the summer months and 1-2 per month in the winter months. I have had this mount for 3 years and am the original owner. I have made the adjustments to the focuser, motors, and gears in order to optimize performance. This mount puts objects in the center of a 13 mm UWA EP on a regular basis. I have used it to image Mars and learn the basics of astro-imaging. I am getting a bigger mount and OTA in order to pursue my goal of deep sky astro-imaging and can not afford to keep two telescopes and two mounts at this time!
