This mount was built for use with an Intes MK67 but would likely accommodate a number of different scopes. It has approximately 7.25" horizontal clearance in the cradle and should easily hold a scope weighing 20 pounds or more. The tripod legs are solid oak in an I-Beam configuration so they don't twist or flex. They are absolutely rock sold and include feet which can be adjusted for leveling.

The Autostar GO-TO drive is constucted from Meade DS motors. The worm gears are 120 tooth, double the 60 tooth gears normally found with the DS Motor Drives, and they provide plenty of driving torque while maintaining a respectable SLEW speed.

The Mount and Forks are made from solid aluminum. They are beefy enough in size that flex and vibration are virtually nonexistent.

Includes the everything in the picture, tripod, mount, DS Motors, cables, and Autostar 495 computer unit. Also include are a 12 volt transformer, and the Meade battery holder which takes 10 AA cells. Everything works perfectly. Price is $450 plus shipping.
