This is the black Great Polaris mount made for Celestron by Vixen. This is the one that all of the GP/CG5/EQ clones were copied from. But no one has ever matched it in this price range. It is heavy, strong, silky smooth, simple to use, and wonderfully well-made. It comes with a polar finderscope, counterweight, two slo-mo cables, and 2 slo-mo knobs. I will include a padded hardcase for the mount head that is not pictured. The tripod is the black heavy duty wood surveyor made by Universal. (Click on their website from the Astromart Home Page). It comes with both rubber and spiked feet, their GP/CG5 surveyor tripod adapter, a Bogen adjustable mid-level spreader, and a carrying strap. Fully extended, with a narrow spread, it will elevate to over 7 feet. With legs up, and a wide spread, it is just over 3 feet. I have used it with both a C9.25 and a MN66 and it handles them both easily. The height makes it a good choice for a long refractor. I will sell the mount and case seperately for $360, and the tripod seperately for $175. Or, I will sell mount, case and tripod together for $500. Prices include ground shipping and insurance. Thanks for looking!
