Recent delivery of a new AP 900 GTO mount forces sale of an old friend.
I have used this G-11 for astrophotography and CCD imaging since I purchased it new in November 1998. Every film and CCD image on my web site was taken using this mount with a variety of OTAs. Please e-mail me for the web site URL as Astromart will not allow me to post it. The new Astro Physics mount was purchased to carry a larger OTA.
This mount has been modified with a third shaft bearing in both the R.A. and Declination shafts for greater stability. The original worm bearings have been upgraded to higher quality bearings. I replaced the original worm gears with Losmandy's new high precision worms in 2002.
The mount comes with the standard Losmandy dual axis drive controller, hand paddle, cables, an 11 lb and a 21 lb. counterwieght, and the original Losmandy tripod with adjustible legs. Also included are a case for the mount head, the Losmandy shaft encoders and a DSC computer which was manufactured by Sky Commander for Losmandy.
The mount head is in excellent condition with only minor normal use wear and tear to the dovetail saddle plate. The mount head and shaft bearings have been regularly cleaned and maintained. The tripod shows normal wear and tear as this has been a portable CCD and astrophotography rig.
Asking price for this mount is $1,950 shipped to you via UPS ground within the continental U.S. I will accept a cashiers check or postal money order.
