I am selling a brand new Losmandy Model 492 Digital Drive System for a G8 GM-8

These motors are interchangeable with the G11, however, the 492 Control Boards are specific to the G8 vs G11.
**This will not work with the G11 unless you replace the Control Board in the 492 with a G11 Control Board (sold by Losmandy).
I purchased a new base GM-8 and upgraded the Motors and Gear Boxes to Servos, as I am running it GoTo off of my Gemini 2 from a G-11 that I already owned.
So I have no need for these brand new Stepper Motors and Digital Drive System. I can provide a receipt showing delivery of my GM-8 on 12/29/17, just two weeks ago.
I removed these three days later when my Servo set-up arrived from Losmandy and I upgraded the mount.

These did see first light with the mount the night I got it. I placed my 7Dii on the mount with a 200mm 2.8 in my backyard. I was getting 100% keepers at 2 minutes unguided, and about 70% keepers at 3 minutes unguided. And that was with a rough polar alignment using just a Losmandy polar scope. So they definitely provide accurate tracking.

This offering includes the following items:
- Losmandy Model 492 Digital Drive system (i.e. stepper controller) with PEC and drive speeds up to 16X the sidereal rate.
- (2) Aluminum Mounting knobs to attach the drive controller to a Losmandy computer mount, standard on all Losmandy Tripods and Pier Heads.
- (2) New Stepper Motors with attached Losmandy PC boards (for cables from controller), with motor covers.
- (2) Coiled cables for connecting stepper motors to the drive controller, both RA and DEC.
- Losmandy Hand Controller and cable.
- 12v Cigarette Plug/Cable.
