CGE equatorial mount with OnStep conversion
I have a CGE that has been converted to OnStep for sale. 60lb capacity with new stepper motors. All of the electronics have been wired into the existing framework, so it's hard to tell that it's been converted: No weird boxes or wires outside of the mount! There is no hand controller used with this setup, just a USB-C cable to your laptop, and plate solving to find your position (it works great with NINA). The guider port is still active, and tracking is great (I've done 300 second exposures at 714mm with nice round stars, unguided).

Please be aware that OnStep is for DIYers, and this mount is for someone who is at least somewhat comfortable with electronics. OnStep is an amazing platform and is very versatile and expandable, but it can required some tinkering. I will share the build files with the buyer in case you want to tweak things or add features (the accessory ports on the mount are not in use, but they can be connected and used for DIY focusers, rotators, etc.).

$1000 for the mount head and electronics pier only (no tripod or counterwieght).
$1300 for the mount including the tripod and one 21lb counterweight.

I will pay the PayPal fee but shipping is extra.
Price: $1,000
