I'm looking for an EQ/EQ2 or similar tripod for use with a solar prominence scope (~60mm size). I've been using an old surveyor's tripod for personal observing with the scope, but since I plan to use the scope in teaching the astronomy merit badge to a camp's worth of Boy Scouts next month, I need to upgrade the mount to something more "user friendly". Cosmetic condition/age are irrelevant. The tripod must have slow-motion whips/cables; a clock drive would be nice but certainly not necessary. (Having it would let me do a rough polar alignment and maximize the number of observers I could accomodate before re-centering the scope.) If you have one that is surplus to your needs, drop me a note and tell me about it! The Scouts and I will thank you.

Jim
