Hi all,

I am getting out of the photo-part of the hobby so I can return to visual. The Mach 1 is complete overkill for that purpose, so I would like to find a new home for it. This mount was used extensively for imaging with a TV127is. I have included two representative screenshots from PHD while it was guiding at 6.67"/pixel. You'll see an rms error of down to 0.05 pixel which translates to <0.5" error.

Here's what I am including in the package:
AP Mach 1 (SN: M10106, shipped in 2007)
Saddle plate: 1x DOVELM162
CW shaft: M1053-A
CW: 2x 18SCWT
1x 10SCWT
Hand controller (V4.12)
Control box (GTOCP3)
Scopeguard case for mount and CWs, Orion case for keypad

Pickup* only for now.

*Pick up can happen either in Santa Barbara (practically any day) or in the SF Bay Area during the week of Dec 14th (near Palo Alto) or between Dec 24-27 (anywhere).


  • Condition Very good
  • Location Santa Barbara
