In perfect condition and working order. I last used it a couple of weeks ago. Has always been in an observatory - I'm the second owner -- the original owner always had it in an obsy, too. So it has never been roughly handled "in the field". So no marks and scratches on the mount. CW bar has marks from use which are inevitable....but no gouges or scratches.

Included: The mount, flat pier adapter plate, 1 7/8" counterweight bar (no extension), Six 10-pound counterweights fashioned from weightlifting equipment - they fit the CW snugly, slide easily without being loose, kept in place by two shaft collars, and don't look too weird....see pics. 13-inch tilt-in saddle by ADM, power wire with male 12vdc cigarette plug, wires to motors. Hand controller with 4.19.3. Newest GTO3 chip was installed in 2018...Owners manual.

Note: there is no pier included in the sale.

Pic of M27 was taken with a 75-pound 12.5" Newtonian on the AP1200, autoguided for 4 minutes. This mount is a beast!!!

Selling as part of an overall downsizing - I'll make do with my Mach 1.....

As for shipping. I'd be happy to deliver it to any part of Ontario south of Sudbury - North Bay. Meet you at a border crossing - Detroit, Port Huron, Buffalo, Ivy Lea/I81. Canadian price is $8500CDN....

I could bring it with me to OkieTex in late September. Or meet you along the way between Toronto and Kenton, OK. e.g. S. Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma....I can deviate from my route by a modest amount as well...If you make a 300 mile drive to my route we could cover a huge chunk of the USA for the hand-off! I do not have the original shipping boxes...

Payment by bank-to-bank wire transfer is the most secure. But an international money order would also work. If you meet me, cash is fine, too!

Make an offer!!! You never know!!!!

thanks, Dave
