***A pending sale collapsed, so here i am reposting this ad!***
I am selling my trusty Losmandy GM8 GEM (equatorial head only, tripod is NOT included but the LMA tripod/pier adapter IS included). This unit is in excellent condition and works flawlessly with amazing tracking accuracy. I have used this mount mainly for astro-photography (sample images available on request) with excellent tracking and stablility. The GM-8 is simple, very sturdy and can be serviced and optimized right on the field; to tune backlash and gear meshing to perfection, all what is needed is just a couple of tiny allen wrenches. The equatorial head comes complete with the original saddle plate, two custom-made universal dovetails, original electronics/stepper motors, 12v cigarette lighter PSU, and single 7lb counter-weight. The LMA adapter permits the use on a pier, a Meade-like tripod or an inexpensive and sturdy surveyor's tripod.
If you are looking for a solid and portable mount for photographic or visual use, then look no further. I am selling mine only because I have ordered a Titan, so I need to make some money fast before my wife finds out!
