[edit Jan 15] If anyone is interested in the G11 head and Gemini controller, I'd be willing to split the pier out of the package. $1600 +actual shipping for the head, Gemini, counter weight, etc.

I have a Losmandy G-11 mount for sale. According to the serial number, I think the mount was made in 2000. I am selling the mount with the following:
  • G-11 mount head
  • High precision brass worm for RA
  • Standard stainless steel worm for declination
  • Robin Cassady "tip-in" saddle (accepts D-style dove tails)
  • 1-1/4" counter weight shaft (Losmandy standard)
  • 1 each 21 lb counter weight. I've repainted it, it was well used and rusty. The photo does not show the included counter weight.
  • Gemini 1 controller (Level 4, standard motors) and hand controller (plus cables for the hand controller, power, and motors)
  • 8" dia x 48" tall portable pier (8" x 24" steel lower section, 8" x 24" aluminum upper section), steel adapter plates (painted) and a Losmandy MA adapter
Note: neither the telescope nor observatory shown in a few of the photos is for sale.

I have taken the mount apart for cleaning and regreasing in November 2019. I've adjusted the worm/ worm wheel mesh so there is minimal back lash (at least for visual).

I want to reduce my astronomy "inventory", so I am not looking for trades. I do not want to separate any components, either. I would love a local sale, though I think I have sufficient boxes to ship everything at buyer's expense. I will remove the motors from the mount head for safe shipping (perhaps the saddle, too to make the head more compact). The Gemini components will ship separately from the heavy components. The counter weight will likely be shipped USPS flat rate. Perhaps a total of six boxes?

I will accept PayPal (add 1.5% to mount+ shipping total to split their fee), check and money order (either must clear my bank prior to shipping). Of course if we agree to a local sale, cash is good, too. If you are interested and near the 3rd Coast, we can probably arrange to meet for pick-up somewhere in the Corpus Christi/ San Antonio/ Austin/ Dallas/ Beaumont "circle". With a local sale, we can set the mount up and apply power so you can see it work before we finish the sale.
