Street value of 10" LX200 GPS Fork Mount
      #5616972 - 01/11/13 10:23 AM

A fork mount without any goto.

Only the metal left behind. Clutch works and gears smooth but no electricals.
I use my scope like a dob but thinking of deforking and seeing what I can typically get for a (not working) 10" fork to offset new gem price. Thanks in advance for your input.

Best bet, do a good scan of Astromart to see what they've gone for in recent times.

If it has the worm gears it could be revived with one of these

Even better if it has the motors.

If all else fails a scrap dealer might give you something for it.
