Here we have a very nice "TeleVue Equatorial System" mount. I believe the rated capacity is 26 pounds.
Included are the following:
~Lighted polar scope.
~TV Wood tripod... ash I think… very sturdy, with stabilizing shelf.
~RA motor drive with controller.
Also included is the original manual that outlines all the other add-ons for this mount, along with its assembly and use. Some manual pages are copied, but appear to be "original" copies from TeleVue, and there are a few handwritten notes from Uncle Al. Also included are some cool full-page ads for old TV equipment like original Naglers and Renaissance scopes.
I would call the overall condition of the mount very good. It is not mint, and has a few scratches, wear marks, and other signs of use but not too many. The Equatorial head ships in its original box.
I bought it on Astromart last April and have not had time to use it. It appears fine mechanically. I will also include an AP dovetail mounting plate that has been modified to fit the top of this mount... very smooth for attaching your telescope... and a short AP dovetail bar.
Email with any questions or for better/higher resolution photos. If you are seriously interested, I will take a picture of any specific part you might want to see…
Note: The picture is a sample. There are many more parts to this.
I would really like to see this go to a TV aficionado who will appreciate it and take good care of it.
Best offer over $775 shipped CONUS... or?
Thanks for looking.
NOTE: I have discovered a possible problem with the RA lock. I am working to fix it, and will update this ad when I do Thanks again.
