I am selling my excellent condition Losmandy GM8 and LWT (LightWeight Tripod). This standard GM8 mount has been updated with all applicable standard GM8 Gemini mount hardware updates.These updates include new Losmandy Dual Losmandy/Vixen 4" saddle, Losmandy brass High-Precision worms on both RA and DEC axis, upgraded ABEC 7 worm bearings, high friction clutch discs (standard clutch discs included). The GM8 has the latest most desireable version Losmandy Gemini 1 controller with lighted rocker switch and latest version L4 v1.05 firmware EPROM installed. The Losmandy LWT aluminum tripod is also in excellent condition. 

There are currently installed a set of Astro Devices 311K tic encoders which I plan to remove for installation on the G11G but I can leave installed if you want to use them with a Digital Setting Circles like Nexus DSC or similar that can take advantage of these high resolution encoders. I have been using the Nexus WiFi DSC with the classic and fabulous Losmandy Porter Slip Clutches and this mount is a visual observer's dream mount. Just balance the mount out, loosen the clutches and use two fingers to push the scope to an object. The GM8 mount is a delight to use with the Nexus DSC when combined with the Gemini system or optionally a SkyFi II WiFi device with SkySafari as I have also used. 
As is shown in the photos the GM8 mount is in excellent condition and has no sun fading. This mount has been used regularly and everything works as it should. The photos may show items not included with the sale, if it is not listed it is not included. Only the mount and tripod is being offered and includes the following: 

Losmandy GM8 mount head with Gemini servo motors, complete standard head with D/V saddle, CW shaft, toe saver, one (1) 7 pound CW, standard knobs and fasteners, Losmandy Gemini 1 L4 V1.05 controller, servo motor cables, power supply, PS cable, hand controller, HC cable Losmandy Lightweight Tripod (LWT) with upgraded Losmandy adjusting handles - NOTE the tripod accessory tray and knob is NOT included.
