Telescope shown in pictures is NOT included. This is an offer to sell the MOUNT ONLY.
This is a sale of the mount with controller, tripod, counter weight, and tray plus the Orion Mount Extension. NO Telescope.
The mount works well and is in good condition. There are scratches on the plastic window of the controller (see picture) when this little plastic piece fell off in the dark and I stepped on it. It's glued back on but could be replaced with another piece of clear plastic.
This is a computerized Advanced GoTo version of Celestron's sturdy CG-5 mount. Features NexStar computer control system and an Autoguider port for long exposure deep sky astrophotography. Telescope shown in pictures is not included. Local Pickup Only, no shipping. A youtube video taken using this mount can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vv8ExDE0jhk
