I am upgrading to an EM-400 and need to sell my EM-200. I purchased this from another star gazer a couple of years ago. I do not know its complete history, but it works well. Included are four Orion 11 pound counter weights. As can be seen in the photos, I needed all four to balance my Mewlon 250S. That is the main reason I am upgrading. When I add a camera, I am not sure I will be able to balance it. I have been controlling the mount with a SkyFi using Sky Safari Pro. I am holding on to the SkyFi for my EM-400.

No tripod is included, but the EM-200 pier adapter is included (not pictured). The saddle currently on the mount is not included. I bought it specifically for the 250S. The saddle pictured separately is included. Optionally I have a 14 inch saddle I would substitute if desired.

This version of the mount will run on 12 volts, but will slew faster at 24 volts. I have included a 12v to 24v adapter to improve slewing speed.

When I purchased the mount, the previous owner stated the polar scope sight was not working. I determined the light does work, but it is not properly aligned to light the display. I talked with Fred Garcia at Texas Nautical about it. He told me to try to use the erase end of a pencil to move the LED to proper alignment. I tried it once without much success. I have used a one star alignment process to get good enough polar alignment for visual use. If desired, I could ship the mount through TN to get Fred to fix the alignment.

Asking price of $3000 includes shipping CONUS and PayPal fees. Cash price would be $2900, and cash picked up would be $2500.

Thanks for looking.
