MEADE LX70 German Equatorial Telescope Mount with slow motion controls, new in box.

Only opened to inspect for completeness and function. It has never been used nor a telescope mounted. I bought this mount with the idea to convert it to motorized GOTO for astrophotography using DIY open source OnStep system. This is a EQ-5/Vixen GP class mount that accepts vixen dovetail rails for loads up to 20 lbs, brass worm gears for both axis, 11.4 pound counterweight, and adjustable tripod with 1.75" steel legs. It receives stellar reviews both on Cloudy Nights and the International Astronomy Forum for visual use or conversion to motorized tracking. I am only selling because while on a trip I found a good deal on an Exos-2GT mount. This is a perfect mount that is solid for up to an 8"SCT/Newtonian telescope yet still provides easy grab and go to take to the yard or pack in the car for the dark skys of the deep desert or mountains.
