I am selling my Astro-Physics 1200 GTOCP3 mount. I am the original owner.
It is in excellent condition and shows only minimal signs of use; see the jpgs.

I bought it in mid-2006 and used it for deep-sky imaging until February 2012.
Since then it has been in the corner of my living room, covered.
The peak-to-peak error is 2 arc seconds, I got it down to 1 arc second
with PemPro but seldom used PEC, my auto-guiding didn't need it.

*** I.e. this mount has only 5.5 years of use on it, the other 7.5 years
*** has been in climate-controlled storage.

I have powered it up and spun the axes once or twice every year since 2012.
It has never travelled farther than my back yard since I bought it.
It has never carried more than 75lbs of equipment, typically 30 to 60lbs.

I am not separately selling any of the items listed below at this time.
The RA and Dec sub-assemblies ship in un-used AP boxes I purchased recently for this purpose, with the original AP polyethylene foam.
All other items over 2lbs ship with AP-equivalent polyethylene foam.
The buyer pays all shipping and PayPal fees. No trades.
CONUS only, I am not shipping this overseas.
