For sale, Celestron CG-5 mount with Celestron dual axis drives. Mount is 1-year old, and came with my C9.25. This is the newer CG-5, with the ball bearings on the R.A. axis. I have a new EQ-6 mount on the way, so this one has to go! Includes aluminum tripod (see note below), accessory tray, 2 11-lb counterweights, dovetail plate, and Celestron instruction manual. Mount is in excellent condition, however it is missing two of the set screws for the polar axis finder (not included) and one of the tripod leg clamps is cracked due to overtightening (could have killed my friend when she did that!). The tripod legs can still be extended, however I would not recommend extending the legs with the cracked clamp. I've been using the tripod without extending the legs for the past 6 months. Will sell for $275 obo, plus actual shipping costs, with or without the tripod (your choice - it's free for the price of shipping if you want it). I'll try to get pictures up in the next day or two. Thanks for looking!

**Updated w/ Photos**
Below are photos of the mount, the dovetail bar, as well as the cracked tripod leg clamp
