Up for sale is my Ascension 200 HR mount (with high resolution encoders) in excellent condition.
Specifications relevant to this mount can be found on the Planewave website.
This observatory class mount has a load capacity of 275lbs, and both axis are equipped with 12.1 inch diameter (360 teeth) gears. Each eaxis is equipped with a 10 inch diameter Renishaw high resolution encoder, and tracking past the meridian can be achieved, up to 22.5 degrees. The RMS tracking error is typically .14 to .25 arcseconds.
This mount comes with 3 additionnal counterweights, and an 8 inch counterweight extension shaft. The value of this mount, with the extra counterweights and extension shaft, comes to $24,555US dollars, and I'm now asking $13,500, a saving of $11,000. So what it comes down to, is a complete package, at an incredible price, considering the superb condition and quality of this mount. Please compare with similar products.

Pictures included, and I'm willing to cover half of shipping charges (US & Canada).
Thank you for looking!
