Super Polaris mount from a Vixen/Celestron SP-C8 set-up, with dual axis drives and an original SkySensor GOTO computer. Mount is in good shape (7 or 8 out of 10), with a few small issues. Wooden legs have a few small nicks and rubs (cosmetic only). Mount is missing the accessory tray, one polar scope end cap and one of the polar scope stick-on scales. I have replaced the two azimuth fine adjustment knobs, and one of the counterweight setscrews with similar ones, as the plastic knobs on the originals cracked. I will include the originals with the mount though. Also, the manual slow motion knob fits a little too snugly on the front end of the declination shaft, but does fit without a problem on the back end.

Otherwise, the mount functions very nicely. Movement in both axes is smooth and without slop. Both clutches work fine, and motor movement is smooth and precise. Two five pound counterweights are included.

The SkySensor computer works well and comes with two DIN motor connector cables, a car lighter adapter and a photocopied manual with the star/celestial object list.

Please email me if you have any questions about this set-up. Price is $580 plus shipping, or $600 if you want the dovetail also. Thanks and clear skies!

PS. Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. C8 ota is not included.
