Intes MN66 Mak-Newt & Vixen SXD2 Mount w/ Starbook 10

Intes MN66 Maksutov Newtonian 6" F/6 Telescope - $1850 + shipping

Tube exterior has multiple paint chips/scuffs but the the rest of the telescope is in excellent condition including the optics, except for one small scratch which can be seen in image 7 (link below).
It was there when I purchased the scope second hand and has no effect on the wonderful views you get through this telescope.

Soft carry case.
Telegizmos cover.
Collimation adjustment allen keys.
Cooling fan (rear fit).
Original Certificate of Optical Quality (Mike Palermiti)
Fitted with 2" JMI NGF-DX1 Dual Speed Crayford Focuser. Includes 2" to 1.25" adapter.
2" x 50mm and 2" x 35mm extension tubes.

Vixen SXD2 Mount with Starbook 10 - $2450 + shipping

SXD2 mount with Starbook 10 and upgraded Declination axis with Kyoei SXP conversion kit: https://www.kyoei-osaka.jp/SHOP/kyoe...lti-clamp.html

The conversion kit makes the SXD2 similar to the SXP in that any saddle plate with 35mm centre to centre holes can be fitted.

Excellent condition overall (just a small paint chip covered by white tape) and functions perfectly.

SXG Half Pillar.

Out of curiosity, would you sell the mount separately and what price would you let it go for?
