Fornax Lightrack II with Latitude Wedge
This is a Fornax Lightrack II mount with its own FMW-200 wedge for Alt-Az adjustment, purchased from Fervent astronomy about a year ago. I used it as a grab and go set up. The mount has a 6kg unbalanced and 12kg balanced weight capacity but people had load much more and it still held its own (see link).

Its tracking capabilities are unmatched with a Periodic Error +/- 1 arc sec. This means that with accurate polar alignment there is no need for guiding at all. The maximum useful focal length is 500mm and 1000mm unbalanced and balanced weight respectively. It is capable of tracking for 107min before the need to rewind.

All the original paperwork is included, even the Fornax sticker is still there along with the cloth pouches for the mount and wedge.

You can read more about the mount and what it can do here: https://ferventastronomy.com/Products/#!/LIGHTRACK-II-MOUNT/p/105331241/

Included are:
- Fornax Lightrack II mount $719
- FMW-200 wedge $485
- iOptron tripod $145
- Celestron Polar Scope $85
- Adapter for Celestron Polar scope $20
- power and guide cable

A value of $1,450 - it can be your for $1,050.

If you want to have the FMC-100 counterbalance kit (2kg weight included) I can throw that in for $300, which is essentially half price.
