Hello all, I really don't want to mess with having to ship the mount so I'm offering it up here before broadcasting its availability to a wider audience on that other site. I'm offering up for sale my Celestron CGE mount along with accessories. This is the mount that I have used for all of my imaging in the last year. Alas, I've moved up to a larger mount so this one has to go in an effort to offset some of that cost. The package includes: 1 - Celestron CGE Mount - With a capacity of 65 pounds the mount will carry most any reasonable load that you want to put on it. The mount also includes two 22 pound counterweights. The mount was hypertuned by Ed Thomas of Deep Space Products back in November and has performed even better since. After nailing down the first two alignment stars and then slewing to the other side of the sky for the first calibration star - the mount will routinely put the calibration star within about 50 pixels of the center of my CCD camera. It comes packed in the original box from Celestron along with the heavy duty tripod that shipped with the CGE mounts. I do not have the original box for the tripod. The hand controller contains the latest firmware and the cables are all in excellent condition. The DEC cable was replaced in December and is only a few months old. 2 - ADM Dual Series 12" Saddle - This mount has a 12" saddle that has dual channels cut into it to accept either a standard Losmandy style dovetail plate OR a Vixen dovetail. 3 - ADM knob replacement kit - I don't believe this replacement kit is still available. Use of these knobs allows for field assembly of the CGE without the need for tools. I am also including all of the original hex bolts/knobs that came with the CGE - so there are two full sets included. The mount and tripod have some minor marks from normal wear and tear, but perform excellently. My ultimate goal for myself is long focal length deep sky imaging and I recently acquired a new mount for that purpose. That is the only reason that I'm selling this mount. A search of recent ads on Astromart shows that the CGE has a going price of $2200 to $2400. I'm offering the mount here for $2000. The mount is currently boxed up and ready to go. Here is a picture of the mount setup and ready to go. Please note that the refractor, camera and batteries are not included. Also note that there are 2 counterweights included in this sale - only one is shown in the photo.
