This is the black version made for Celestron by Vixen in the early to mid 90's. Comes with illuminated polar finder, dovetail bar/tube ring holder, slow motion controls, 2 counterweights, and a black wooden tripod w/ accessory tray. The mount head itself is in excellent shape. There are a few marks on the top where the dovetail is attached. There is a very small amount of play in the DEC axis. It is minimal and easily guided out. I am not sure how but it may be able to be adjusted out. **I tightened up the screws on the DEC slow motion and it seems to have eleminated it. Also, the DEC setting circle is loose and non-functional**. The dovetail bar and counterweights have marks from use. The base where the mount attaches to the tripod also shows signs of use. The tripod is an adjustable, wooden tripod that has been recently repainted. There are some nicks and some screw holes from a previous owner. None of the cosmetic marks affect performance at all. Thanks for looking. $450 shipped. Money order or I can take paypal if you cover the 3% fee.
