Small, alt/az goto mount, can handle about 10lbs easily. Tracks well, perfect for visual use, (not for photography). I used this with my f /6.6 Borg 76ED, with its 5-ocular turret, as my quick grab goto and it was great, really fun. Also used it with a 90ETX, even had a friend's Questar on it once. Excellent pointing accuracy, updated hand controller, very easy to learn and use. 2 star alignment gets you up in about two minutes. Baader bracket comes with mounting plate. Mount includes:
Tripod with tray
Cigarette lighter connection for battery operation - 25' long
Celestron AC converter
original tube holder for Celestron 80GT OTA
Computer cable to hook up to your computer and use with theSky or other astro program - this works great. If you go this route, when you synch on objects as you go around the sky, you can go all night and hit the center of any object in a 20mm plossl, if you are aligned correctly.
Also manual for hand controller, and for Baader installation (it comes installed, as in pic, but in case you want to change it. The instructions also give details on hoew to adjust the tension for your scope). If you need any help, there are good websites, or I'll be happy to walk you through it.
Other than strategically placed velcro for the hand controller, and larger holes for the tripod tray (which are covered by the tray when installed), this mount looks like new. Comes packed in original box.
Asking $240. Paypal or MO. Only selling because I got a GP with SS2K, which I use on my bigger mount, so I know I won't be using this any more. Can also sell it with a Ken's Pier 2 with an adapter that holds the mount rock-steady, but I think it might be a bit much to ship. Pls. inquire if interested. I also have some extra sets of smaller diameter rings if you are in need. And if yo have a Borg scope, I have the Borg adapter that allows you to use the original, lightweight plastic ring to hold the 80mm tube.
