Personally, I’d have washed my hands of that one.. think about it.....😂

Not sure why you would think this would be scalping - the guy is asking 200 pounds and FLO sells it for 215, so then he must be a complete looser as a scalper. I think the poor guy just wants as much

yes but then you'd have to swap the steering wheel and pedals over

Then don't buy it.

CEM25p is discontinued, and is in a sweet spot for a portable mount suited to 11kg imaging payload. IOptron have not advertised a like replacement for it.

I can understand someone paying more than retail for it once new stock runs out.

But, as already said, if the price isn't right then just move along.

Not a great price but not scalping for the CEM25p

Plus the tripod with 2” legs, mini pier, extra counterweight hard case etc so about £1,100,00 new. £699.00 is the head and counterweight only.

I was wrong to call this out and didn’t do my research well enough. Apologies all round and especially to the seller. Thanks for straightening me out John. 🤐
