$1250 for local SF Bay Area sale. I'll deliver!
$1350 for outside the area, but within the 'lower 48.' (If shipping costs are over $100, I'll absorb them.)
What a deal! This platform sells for over $2700 new! Perfectly capable of GUIDED CCD (or film) shots--I actually had some success at using this for CCD'ing myself.
Very few hours on this superb platform. Originally made for a latitude of 38.5 degrees (St. Louis), but works fine here in No. California (37.75 degrees).
Original owner (I am the second) had it made to accept the feet of his 20" Dob (rather than remove the Ground Board and simply bolt the Rocker Box to the platform--which is how it is usually done). The two pieces of plywood attached to the top (see pic below) is a modification I made to accept the feet of my 13-incher--these will be removed, but four screw-holes will be left. I can fill in the other two "feet-holes" if you like and supply--and attach--1/4" Teflon for traditional mounting. I can also make add-on "feet holes" like in the pic--all you have to do is tell me the diameter of your feet and their spacing.
Included too, is a brand new (internal) battery AND a brand new backup battery--Tom Osypowski charges $90 apiece for these batteries.
Reason for selling? I have an Eq. Platform I made about twelve years ago that still works fine for visual use; I just don't need "photographic capability" any longer.
Trades considered: I'm looking for a 20mm Nagler, for example.
