'Featured photo' shows the roof of my house????

I just placed an ad, featured for 60 hours, but the photo shows the roof of my house, and not the mount and tripod for sale.
The title of my ad is 'Losmandy G11T mount with HD folding tripod.'
Can someone please adjust the picture to show my mount?
Thank you, John Robbins

The only way it would show a pic of the roof of your house would be if you uploaded a pic of the roof of your house....I looked at the ad and all I see are pics of the mount and 1 star field image which you say was taken using the mount.

I'm sorry. I guess I didn't make myself clear enough.
The picture shown in the 'Featured' photo is part of the picture. It's just the very top 1/4 of the picture, ie, the roof of my house. The picture I was expecting to see is the first picture in the series I posted. If you look at the very top of that picture, you will see the roof of my house shown in the 'featured' image.

Are you a moderator and can you help me with this?
Thank you, John

True, sometimes it's hard to convey in words what seems so easy in thought.
At this point, my 60 hrs are up, so not much point in pursuing.

I'm curious, I've had a lot of looks, but no interest. Since you have been here for a long time, I wonder if you've seen any of these G11T mounts sold, and if so, what price did they sell for?  I'd really like to sell the thing, but don't have a price point to work with. I did a 'Search' for sales here, but found nothing. Plenty of G11g, but no g11T.
Thanks for any help, John

John,
I have not tried this myself but try just searching archives for G11 without the suffix.  Sometimes adding too much information just shuts down any useful search.

Thanks for that suggestion James.
I just gave it a try, but found no G11T advertised as far back as 2018.
Mine is sold at this point, but interesting that no others were advertised here!

Several possible explanations.....

1. More than a few folks delete their ads once an item sells (hate that)

2. Not a lot of sales of that model thus not many on the market

3. Most owners hanging on to them

Suspect a combination of all three......
