I have a nice, jewel of a GEM for sale, in great shape. I bought the mount used and bought a new Tak FCL tripod for it. Movements and quality are typical Tak. I've used it with my FS102 and it has been solid for visual use. This mount is predecessor to EM-2 mount and has single, RA drive. Manual slo motion knobs on both axes are also included. Very accurate, smooth drive. I Aquired both a GPDX and this mount at the same time and sold the GPDX ... a no brainer.
This mount is more solid, steadier, and has a better build quality than the GPDX. It is also more compact.
Includes one Tak counterweight (I'll weigh it tonight), battery pack and hand controller for RA speed.
The FCL tripod cost $369 new and are much steadier than the GPDX tripod.
I will post a pic tonight.
Asking $1450 + shipping for total.
$1200+ shipping for just the GEM/no tripod.
Will not sell tripod by itself.

Personal finances force sale.
