Deep Space Products has a very lightly used 10Micron GM2000HSP Ultra-Portable mount with absolute encoders for sale. The mount essentially shows no sign of use. The original owner moved to a 10Micron GM2000HPS Alt/Az mount. The mount is from July 20, 2014 and has the newer multi-line hand controller and standard built-in Wi-Fi. The sale includes:
  • mount head,
  • built-in Wifi
  • counterweight bar,
  • hand controller,
  • computer,
  • cables,
  • AC/DC power supply.
It will also include:
  • portable DC/DC power supply,
  • mount head protective cover,
  • new, unused extra-long saddle.
The mount has been tested in the shop and a log generated that indicates that the mount is performing without any issues (the 10Micron mount log records many aspects of the mount's performance sufficient to show that a mount is working as it should). Base on the results of this testing, we are offering a 90-day warranty on the mount.

Additional items needed would be counterweights, and if you intend to go portable with it a tripod.

Normal cost would be $15,700 plus shipping. Get this mount for just $12,000 $11,000 including shipping (only within the US).
