Product Description

Losmandy GM811G Modular Equatorial Mount with FHD Tripod

Losmandy has taken their classic GM8 and G11 mounts and have made them completely modular.  This mount package includes the G11 RA Axis and a GM8 DEC axis for a combined load capacity of 50 pounds but with a mount weight of 29 pounds.   A redesigned compact body and 'tucked in' motors for a streamlined look and operation.  By being able to easily split the mount in two, transporting and setting up the mount becomes even more manageable.  This mount includes the FHD tripod and 1 11 pound counterweight. 

The GM8G11G does not split into two pieces without the addition of an RA Extension kit which will be released soon.
