Losmandy Titan GEM mount only with first version Maxon motors, MAL adapter, two Losmandy 21lb counterweights and one 5lb non-Losmandy. No Gemini box, hand controller or cords.

After much research and input from fellow CNrs I think the way to sell this is to offer it as just the mount with MAL adapter, sans the Gemini box I got with it as most seem to want to upgrade the mount to the Gemini 2 anyway.

What I do know about this mount is there is no serial number (Losmandy confirmed this...seems odd to me), the gear housings are likely later versions as they are plain stainless steel rather than black anodized aluminum, the motors are the first generation Maxon, not the very first non-Maxon nor the high-torque. There is a slight bit of play in both gear assemblies and this has been in storage for quite some time before it came to me so the buyer should plan on going through it check clearances and make any adjustments necessary. Cosmetically very nice except for the MAL which has faded anodization, not mint as there are a few signs of use and storage but overall quite good. Came to me in an estate buy with a Gemini 1 box (not included) but no hand controller nor cables. Shown sitting on top of an ATS pier, the pier is not included though it's available in another listing.

$2150, local pickup in the Chico or Sacramento area preferred though I do get down to the San Francisco Bay Area every two weeks or so and can meet up there. I will ship this in three boxes (DEC axis, RA axis, counterweights) but as you likely know this weighs a TON so it will be costly even to a California address.

Cash at time of personal pickup preferred, if I am to ship it PayPal is fine but we split the fee.
