A Paramount ME (USB version) is excellent working condition.

Includes:
- tripod (missing one of the six locking screws)
- adapter plate for tripod
- two 20 lbs bisque counter-weights
- one 48.5 lbs custom counter-weight
- counter-weight shaft
- Versaplate
- power supply
- custom cart for moving the mount while on the tripod (if wanted)
- hand paddle controller

The custom counter-weight was made to allow the Paramount to support an 16" OTA and clamp rings (combined 83 lbs), with the two 20 lbs weights at the top of the shaft to allow adjustments for additional OTA weight (cameras, piggy-backs, etc). Custom counter-weight does not have a locking screw. A pipeclamp was used to secure the weight at the bottom of the shaft.

The Paramount does not come with the Instrument Panel that hangs from the Versaplate. That box was replaced with USB2 and USB3 cables routed through the mount.
The Meade OTA and Optec motorized focuser controller shown in the pictures are not included in this sale (already sold).
