I have an AP1100GTO CP4 with absolute encoders available for a quick sale. The reason I would like to sell it is to upgrade to the 1600 that is being advertised on AM. Having the 1600 still available for me to buy would be a condition of selling my 1100.

I bought my AP1100 about a year ago from a gentlemen who had ordered it in 2016 for his observatory but never installed it. It was never used and it shipped in it’s original packaging. I have had the mount in my poor mans observatory in my back yard and I use it on most clear nights when the moon is not too full. It’s in excellent condition and works flawlessly.

Shipping to the lower 48 is included but not PayPal fees. It will ship in it’s original  packaging. 

The mount would include everything as listed on AP’s website as I’ve been meticulous on keeping everything, even down to the Allen wrench set. Please see the list below.
