I am selling a very clean, meticulously cared for Mach1GTO with CP4. The mount has seen relatively little use and has been updated with the precision adjust rotating pier base and RAPAS adapter so it is just like the newest version without the newer gearboxes. The mount has recently been cleaned and re-greased.

The mount tracks really well and I've measured both the raw and corrected PE and it is very good. The raw PE is 3.79 arcs peak to peak and with the PE curve I created the corrected PE is only 0.28 arcs peak to peak with an RMS of only 0.1. The PE curve will stay loaded in the CP4 controller for you.

The image of the Rosette Nebula was taken with this Mach1 loaded with 55lbs of equipment, including my 10" RC and 80mm apo refractor. I think the results speak for themselves about this mount.
Here is everything included in the sale:
Mach1GTO mount head upgraded to precision adjust rotating pier base (M1RAUP)
CP4 with documentation
CP4 power cable set (CABPP4SET) (not pictured)
Y-cable for servo motors
(3) 9lb AP counterweights
(1) 6lb AP counterweight
Pelican 1650 case
Tripod or pier adapter (ADATRI)
RAPAS adapter (RAPM1) (also comes with the original endcap which can accept the PASILL polar alignment scopes)

$5300 + $100 shipping (I'll pay anything over $100)

(Local pick up price is $5200 - I'm willing to drive 150 miles one way from Chicago)
