I have a Celestron CG5 Advanced GT Goto Mount for sale
It is in reasonable condition but a bit dusty as the mount has been stored in my shed for years
The removable parts have been stored indoors so the are in good condition.
It will need to be collected from Chelmsford due to the weight.

SOLD

A couple of people have asked me if I could post this item to them
I have lost or got rid of the crate it came in and it is too large (and I am too busy) to get it all together and post it.
I have found a local astronomy society to take it off my hands so thanks for looking but it has gone to a good home.

Regards John W

I have tried a search but can't find the load capacity

£100 is a BARGAIN

According to my paperwork the load capacity is 15kg

I just want someone who will use it to have it as it is sitting in my shed (and in various boxes around the house).

Celestron used to sell this mounting loaded with the C11 OTA a few years ago

Thanks Brian
I'm not sure what Skyhawk wants to mount on it but I don't think I could lift 15 kilos anymore!

120 triplet with bino views

OTA Weight 9.61kg (without accessories), 12.13kg (with accessories)

Add a DSLR Nikon D820 and that is beyond the accurate tracking for imaging.

Shame :(

Please don't argue with me, it is stupid, for imaging it is no good FOR ME OK

WHY are you arguing, is it a testosterone thing ???????

The 2K is then taken by the D820 and battery pack, what is it with you needing people to go into every detail

Skyhawk, I'm sure John was not meaning to be argumentative. Your reply really only needed to say that you need a mounting for imaging and that The (remaining) 2Kg is then taken by the D820 and battery pack. The rest I find unnecessary.

With members of all ages we try to be polite on the Forum, and avoid friction whenever possible. Please help us maintain our high standards :D

You will be okay with this mount Skyhawk.

I have a friend who has one with a Tak 120 on it. I also have another who has is C 9.25 riding on it.

Thanks Brian for your comments

I have found Skyhawk's tone and comments generally unpleasant and combatative.
I was trying to be helpful and I can assure him that my testosterone levels are actually very low and I am taking medication for it.
He's not the only one to have problems with his health and needs to wind down his aggression a few stops if he wants to refrain from upsetting people.

Regards John W

Perhaps you want to review YOUR comments before posting

I find sarcastic comments just as unpleasant

"Well according to my maths that's 2.87 kg below the load capacity of the mount and tripod :?:"

To me sarcastic ..............

I'll let you have the last word
