I have an original, around 1985 vintage, SkySensor by Vixen, complete with manual, cables, control head, 2 matching Vixen 5-pin motors (dovetail mount only), Vixen clutches, a cigarette cord and a Super Polaris dec bracket if you need it. All tested and working.

It is not a SS2000, it is the original SkySensor from about 1985 through 1989 or so. It has regular tracking capabilities with 2x and 60x correction/slew, and it is the original "go to" mount; it is not y2k compatible, so planets and the moon can't be "go to"'ed. Slew is about 3-4 sec. per degree, and it keeps track of the "go to" by keeping track of the motor movement.

Worth it even if you just use it as a "real Vixen" dual axis 2x/60x drive corrector for your SP! These are much more durable than the old DMD1 and DMD3 handboxes.

You will need a 12v supply (or car lighter socket) to power it, and an SP mount. I can't yet confirm it works on any of the clone mounts, but may be able to if absolutely necessary.

$200 shipped. I have a spare control head, if wanted, for $70 extra.
