I'm selling this mount due to the lack of use. It was originally acquired for the solar eclipse and is now surplus to my requirements.

The mount is in EX+ condition cosmetically, and it includes the following:
--mount head
--illuminator
--PM-D control box and cables
--1.4kg counterweight
--counterweight shaft
--3/8" tripod adapter (for use with common photo tripods)

The RA manual fine adjustment is a little notchy at one place (fairly common for Takahashi manual slow-motion mechanisms) but the mount is in perfect mechanical condition otherwise. This is an excellent grab-and-go setup while retaining full tracking functionality.

The new price for this is close to $2000. My price is only $1375 with shipping and Paypal fees as needed.

Note: ADM dovetail and Gitzo tripod are not included in this sale
