Here's a small mish mash of items I'm ready to let go. I sold my prized SP mount, so some (not all) of these are leftover from that project.

1) Vixen Super Polaris MT-1 drive covers. These will fit the MT-1 and MD-6 motor drives that go on your SP, SP-DX, GP, GP-D, and GP-DX; these being black in color.

You get 2 covers in this sale, but you need to know that (3) of the (4) contact "teeth" on one of the covers are broken off. You'd have to use a small amount of super glue to hold it onto the motor. The other cover is perfect. BOTH covers are mint in cosmetic appearance. $5.50 sold

2) Vixen MT-1 8-pin dual male end cable for the declination drive. This will fit into ANY Vixen standard 8-pin female motor drive. Some of the older drive handsets, like the DMD-3 have a female 8-pin port for the optional declination drive on the SP/GP mount. With all handsets by Vixen, the RA drive cable is permanently mounted on the controller.
The cable is mint in cosmetics. One of the male terminal ends has a slightly oblate shape for the outer housing. The pins are perfect, but the cylinder contact guard is oblate. It will mate to the MT-1 motor drives without issues as shown in one of the photos. Hard to find item. $9.50 sold

Price doesn't include shipping. I will ship to anyone anywhere.
