I bought the mount and rings 2 months ago brand new from High point scientific for my new FS 102. I had a batch of Takahashi green paint made up from an autobody shop and I sprayed it myself. I did a very professional job. It looks outstanding. I then dismantled the mount, and cleaned and regreased it using lithium grease. The mount is buttery smooth and it works perfectly. The parallax rings were also repainted tak green so everything is uniform and it looks great. You will be impressed with this mount. If you have an FS102, this would be perfect, a complete system. I dont use it because I prefer the teegul alt-az for the type of viewing I do with this particular scope. The mount has the standard tripod which is actually pretty good. The FS102 didnt tax the mount at all at 400x.
I paid $200 for the mount and $125 for the rings. I'd like to trade it for something of similar value. Let me know what you got. Eyepiece(s), OTA's or what ever....
I have pictures at home, not on this computer. You would have to wait till Monday if you want to see pictures. Trust me, its cool looking...
