For Sale Celestron CG-5 mount, tripod and C6R for sale

Post by JimMinCT » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:11 pm

Hey all,
As the title suggests, I am selling my old CG-5 mount, along with the C6R.
This sale will include:
The mount
The tripod
A single, 11 lb counterweight
all the cases for everything.

It will also include the C6R f/8 refractor. A decent doublet scope.
I upgraded the focuser to a GSO 112 mm oversized, rotatable dual speed crayford style.
it includes the stock straight through finder scope.
As I used the power adapter for the CGX, you will need to buy one.
The mount is in OK condition. It lived outside for a few years under cover and was still pulling down 1200 sec images when I switched over to the CGX.
It is used, not abused. I've torn it apart regularly to regrease it and it should provide adequate service for some time.
The on/off switch has also been replaced.
I will not/can not ship everything, so a local pickup is required. I'm willing to drive to the CT border in any direction, and possibly a bit farther if it works out.
US $600 for everything
I will put up pics a bit later
PM me, or ask any questions in the thread...
Cheers!

OK,
After looking over the whole unit... I do have a power adapter for it.
The OTA is in like new condition. Other than the V bar. The CG-5 is not friendly to them.
The mount is in good condition and should give good service for a few years at least.
As promised, here are some pics.
Included are all 3 cases along with the manuals, (not shown).
I'm in the process of posting it to Craigslist as well.
Thanks for looking!
