My step dad was a beloved astronomer and an avid astro-photographer, sadly he passed in 2016 of cardiac arrest. We have just began to go through all his astronomical equipment and decide what to sell and keep. 

The ASA mount was purchased a few years before he passed, he used it only a handful of times and then he put it to be boxed up and it has been inside since 

This mount sale includes:

*DDM85 direct drive mount with laser
* 1 power supply cord
* power supply
* 1 USB cable
* 1 counterweight shaft
*1 ASA Dovetail 
*5 ASA counterweights
*1 pier adapter
*Manuel and instructions


I have posted this before but took it down to contact ASA Wolfgang so they can walk me/take over my computer to ensure us that the mount is fully operational. 
My husband and I have no idea what we are doing when we load up the autoslew program. Lol
Wolfgang was able to download the curent firmware to the mount and make it 100% operational. 
I do have video of mount being operational as of 09-29-2020. I can email the video directly to you,  if you are seriously interested. 

We are willing to take the mount to your house if you live 600 miles from Midland, Tx either direction with a deposit. Or meet up with you up to 600 miles only. Otherwise you will be responsible for shipping..

If paying with PayPal please include the 3% fee.

I appreciate you looking at our Ad and I hope you can give this mount a happy useful home out of the box. 😊
