Only six months old, works great. Comes with user manual, 12v adapter, and hand controller. The hand controller cord has been spliced at one end because replacement cords (that can easily be found in stores) reverse the wire order on the pins, so had to be done, but works perfectly. I accept PayPal. Buyer will pay actual shipping charges(CONUS only). The item will be shipped in the original box with the foam pad between the upper platform and the motors to prevent damage.

The platform will hold up to 160 pounds / 15" dobs. It worked fine with my 10" & 12.5" dobs. It will keep an object in field of view for 30-40 minutes depending on the hand controller adjustments you make, then you just turn it off, push the top part towards the east and turn it back on.

*The DOGI autoguiding interface for this mount is NOT part of the sale, but if you want it I will sell for an additional $200.

It has been wired to work with the Johnsonian hand controller input and can be used to autoguide the mount through a computer serial port provided you also have an off-axis guidescope & CCD. I've used the programs GuideDog and Astrovideo with this mount. The interface basically converts LX200 commands to relays that control the mount through a hand controller input.
