I'm selling my altazimuth mount -- a Lapides-Modified Tak Teegul. The modification (mainly the removal of the "arm") makes it ROCK STEADY (providing you also have a steady tripod. I have such a tripod, and am selling it separately.) Has precise, super-smooth slow-motion controls. The bottom of the mount has a 3/8" threaded-hole. Very clean and well-maintained, in mint condition. No scratches, dings or dents. I used this with an 80mm refractor (using a 90mm Tak tube clamp. Sold separately.) I believe that this mount can take up scopes up to an AP Traveler with 2" diagonal, e.p., and binoviewer. I'm selling this for $490 SHIPPED. Reason for selling is that I'm going equatorial, and I can't afford to keep this high-priced beauty of an altaz set-up as well. I'll take M.O., or Paypal (no c.c. account payment, please. Thanks.)
Breakdown of prices:
Lapides-Modified Tak Teegul (mount only, no tube clamp)-- $490, SHIPPED.
90mm (outside diameter) Tak Tube clamp --$125, SHIPPED (see separate ad.)
Berlebach UNI 15K heavy-duty wood photo tripod -- $320, SHIPPED (see separate ad.)
Items may be purchased separately, or together (all of 3, or minus one or the other.)
