This is a CG5 which has been modified so that the RA is loose
but no backlash so it tracks accurately without wearing
down batteries, the DEC is tighter so that dec balance is not
so critical, the drive motor gears have been modified so they
don't slip, dual axis drives with controller and battery case,
JMI encoders (RA modified for this mount, semi - non - removable),
top of the line Lumicon NGC box, tracks accurately and dsc works
very well even when 'flopping' the mount. The head comes in an
aluminum case. One 11 lb counterweight. No polar scope - can't
be used w/ RA encoder setup. Lightly used. Normally CG5s used
seem to go for about $300 w/ drives. Encoders and hardware cost
over $200 but call that $150, lumicon DCS box goes for $395 but
call that $300 so total asking is $750 plus shipping. Thanks ---
