Celestron CGEM DX Mount + Skysense + Celestron Skyportal WiFi dongle
For Sale is a very nice CGEM DX mount and Tripod, together with a Celestron Skysense system and Skyportal Wifi Dongle. The mount has been very little used in the time I've had it (I'm the second owner) and is in excellent condition. There are a few small blemishes here and there from use (such as on the counterweight shaft), but it functions very well. The mount has been Hypertuned, all the manufacturing roughness taken out, cheap Chinese "grease" removed and replaced with synthetic PTFE lubricant. The axes run verrrry smooth and it balances very well. I canít speak to the astrophotographic performance/PE as I only used it visually, but GoTos are spot on. Selling due to lack of use here in our heavily forested home.

Also incluided is a Celestron Skysense Auto-Alignment system, used for automating initial mount alignment. Functions perfectly and is in excellent condition. Includes all accessories.

Included are:
CGEM DX Mount head
CGEM DX Tripod
Nexstar+ Hand Control
One 22 lb Celestron Counterweight
Shannon eyepiece accessory tray specific to the CGEM. An excellent upgrade, surprisingly useful.
Nexstar hand controller holster for the tripod legs
CGEM DX Owner's Manual
12VDC Power cord for use with an external battery pack
2 DVD set of Ed Thomas/Deep Space Products Hypertune Videos so you can see how the mount is put together and re-assembled.
All three original Celestron shipping boxes (mount head, tripod and counterweight), not shown in photos.
Celestron Starsense Camera
Starsense Hand Controller
Small and large camera brackets
Camera to Aux Port cable
Celestron SkyQLink2 (now called Skyportal) Wifi Dongle

Asking $C1500 firm, buyer pays shipping if required, but I'll cover the Paypal fees. Pickup or delivery is preferred. The mount is located just west of Montreal, but I can meet anywhere within a reasonable distance of Montreal or Ottawa, if so desired. For help with the gas, I would drive as far as the GTA. Again, I have the shipping boxes and would be happy to ship at buyer's expense, but given the weight and size of the mount head, counterweight and particularly the tripod, it would probably be pretty expensive.

The OTA, eyepieces etc. shown in some of the photos are not included.

Thanks for looking
Price: $1,500
