Can you identify this old iOptron mount for me?

It's currently available in the classifieds, but the owner got it in a trade a couple of years ago and has no documentation. He was told it was an 'early' generation, however. The display is taller than any iOptron pictures I can find.

Thanks.

I have the same Cube for my solar scopes. The display is pretty much like the one with the numeric pad.

The nice folks at iOptron were willing to identify it for me.

It is an iOptron Cube -G mount with an 8402G hand controller on a customized tripod. The operation manual is here: http://www.ioptron.c...up/g-series.pdf
