This Takahashi EM-10 mount is in excellent condition. It includes:
* Mount head
* Large Takahashi counterweight
* JMI encoders
* JMI MiniMax controller
* Encoder cables
* Hand contoller
* Power cable
* USB electronics
* Astro-Physics EM-10 alternate mounting plate (Q4045)
* Astro-Physics 8" dovetail and sliding bar (DOVE08 + SB0800)
The EM-10 USD is a superb visual or photographic mount, with accurate tracking and superb mechanics. Very clean, no bumps or bruises. Can be upgraded with Tak GOTO motors and electronics if desired.
As outfitted with the AP plate, saddle, and sliding bar, you can mount any kind of telescope on the EM-10. This is much more flexible than the stock Takahashi mounting method, but the Tak plate is also included if you want to mount a Tak scope.
Price new for mount was $2,400 street price plus $300 for tripod and $100 for counterweight. The NGC MiniMax was a little over $500 new including encoders, hand controller, and cables. AP plate, saddle, and bar new are $110.
NOTE: Takahashi has recently introduced the USD-II model of the EM-10. I am subtracting the $680 difference between the USD-II Temma and the USD Temma (goto) models to arrive at what I think is a very fair price for this setup.
Total package price new would be $3410.00. Allowing $680 for USD-II upgrade cost leaves us with an adjusted base price of $2730.00.
My asking price: $2090 plus shipping.
This gives you a totally ready to use visual or photographic mount with an outstanding reputation for quality and reliability.
Pictures on request, and I will upload a picture here shortly.
