This gorgeous mount and pier is in really good condition for having been pre-owned! There are only two issues of which are cosmetic and not mechanical, therefor this AP900 mount with pier is fully operational. The images below show the discolorization of the pier, which could be painted making this issue very minor. The second issue is that there is some very small chipping of the paint that without taking a close look it cannot easily be seen. The spots of chipping paint are located on sharp edges and this mount has more obtuse angles than acute ones. Overall, This beast of a mount is in really good condition.
