This mount has had some version of Losmandy's new worms
installed. It is fairly new (couple months old), and only
lightly used. The measurements I've taken of the PE shows it
to be around 7 arcseconds, peak to peak. Your mileage may
vary. On request, I can send or provide a link to data or
I have successfully guided this mount with an ST-7E and both
CCDSoft and MaximDL/CCD. I can provide a link to an image
created with this equipment.
This mount is on a pier, so I do not have a tripod to go with
it. I can include the Meade adapter plate that it is mounted
with, and I have 21, 11, and 7 lb counterweights. I can also
include a Losmandy optocoupler if you want to guide it with
an SBIG ST-X camera.
*** Forgot to mention in the first version of this ad, I do
have the improved clutch knobs in this mount. Those are vital.
*** Yet another note. I sold the tripod that came with this
mount for $300. So can deduct at least that much from the new
value to start with when formulating a bid.
*** More and more updates. I also have a serial cable for PC
communication. In spite of what it says the Gemini manual, I
am using this one attached to another 60 feet of shielded cable
and it works fine.
*** Somebody asked me for the firmware version. It's 2.20.
*** I'm really forgetful today. I also have the polar alignment
scope for this mount. If you set up frequently, this is a must
New price is about $3200, not counting accessories and shipping
(but including a tripod). Since it has known performance that
appears to exceed what one can normally expect of a G11, it
will be a good deal.
Make me an offer! I'm thinking that the whole package with
all accessories should be worth about $3000. If you don't
want all the accessories, you can try a lesser offer and
specify what you want.
