Celestron Nexstar GT goto mount on Orion CG4 aluminum tripod. I replaced the original Celestron Nexstar 102GT tripod, which had somewhat short and shaky round tubular steel legs, with an Orion Astroview CG4 aluminum tripod and folding plastic spreader arms. Result is a lot sturdier and taller (48.5 inches high at top of tripod hub when legs are fully extended and splayed). Nexstar GT handset has 40,000-plus objects, mount accepts Vixen-type dovetails. Max OTA weight capacity is around 11 lbs, and max OTA diameter that can reach zenith is 5 inches, so this mount will work well with up to 4 inch diameter refractors, and up to 5 inch diameter Maks and SCTs. Mount and handset are in excellent condition, motors work fine with very good goto and tracking performance, handset has no issues with any buttons or display pixels. Tripod has no scratches, dents or dings. Handset reports as running v4.04 Nexstar GT handset code. Original Orion steel tripod tray is not included, but I am providing a similar-sized triangular tray made of 1/4 inch thick Luan plywood, attached at center of spreader arm assembly with single 1/4 inch bolt and wingnut. Both an Orion AC-to-12v DC adapter and a battery pack holder (holds 8 x 1.5 volt AA batteries) with on-off switch are included, battery pack does not include any batteries.

Includes (1) Nexstar GT mount head and special tripod hub with small bubble level, (2) Nextstar GT handset with 40K objects, (3) Orion Astroview CG4 aluminum tripod, (4) triangular Luan plywood tripod tray, (5) Orion 12v AC-to-DC adapter, (6) battery pack holder with on-off switch (8 x AA batteries needed but not included), (7) handset holder, (8) original Celestron Nexstar GT manual, and (9) Celestron First Light Windows software CD. Original top tripod bolts and hardware for Astroview aluminum tripod are also included, but original CG4 tripod hub is NOT included.

Price is $135, buyer pays least cost insured ground shipping from zip code 14051. Paypal is fine, buyer pays fee.
