I'm selling my Tak P2Z equatorial mount with nearly-new legs. Both mount and legs are in like-new condition.

This mount would be outstanding with a TeleVue 76/85, Tak FS-78, TMB 80mm, or other similar scope. It could probably be used with a 4" APO, though I've never actually tried it with such a scope. I used it with a small reflector with a 40" long tube and it worked quite well. I'm only selling it now because I've gone to a larger scope with a 67" long tube and the new scope really requires a larger mount.

There are a few things that I particularly like about this mount. First, it's pretty light and easy to carry around + set up... it's about as convenient an equatorial mount as I can imagine. Second, it has a cute little clutch system that lets you use the RA slow motion even with the RA motor turned on. Finally, the drive runs on 4 D cells for months without needing new batteries. Naturally, it has the usual Tak quality- smooth slow motions without backlash, nice finish, etc. It's the kind of mount that's a joy to use just because it's such a fine piece of equipment.

The price of the mount and legs new from Anacortes would be over $2200 + shipping. I'm asking $1200 + shipping.

Thanks for looking,
jw
