For Sale
Status: Sold  Advert Category: Mount-Pier-Tripod  Advert # 130445
SOLD - Vixen Super Polaris Mount on AstroSystems low Tripod - SOLD
This is a fully operational Vixen Super Polaris motorised Mount with hand control unit. The mount is in good overall condition but with a couple of issues arising from storage for a number of years.

The remote has the 'D' connector that I used to connect the SBIG ST4 which is also for sale in another advert. If you would like this mount and the ST4 Autoguider you only pay half price for the the autoguider.

It is a well constructed unit with a polar scope and polar scope illumation tool. I used the mount for an 8" AstroSystems Newtonian which is not for sale.

The counterbalance arm has pitting from surface rusting which I have cleaned off but it has left a roughened surface on part of the arm. The counter balance weight still slides freely and locks wherever required but does show some small surface rust spots. The plastic gear cover on one one of the motors (covers gearing) has lost one of its plastic clips so is not firmly fixed. The pulse motors themseleves both function and the hand control also works OK.

Please get in touch via email if you want to know more about the mount or arrange a visit.

Offers will be considered


Price: 200
