I have for sale an Orion SkyView equatorial mount with a Konus brand dual axis drive system installed. This is the original version (not the SkyView Deluxe).

It shows signs of use, but is fully functional; there are a few cosmetic dings and dents on the tripod, one of the clamp knobs on the tripod legs is a replacement and doesn't match the others, and the plastic tab on the telephone-style plug on the RA drive cord has broken off (the drive still works just fine, and the cord stays plugged in by friction, but it could be pulled out if the cord is tugged hard enough).

The aluminum tripod legs have been stuffed with newspaper to help damp vibrations (which aren't very bad, provided the OTA isn't too big). Overall it's a nice & stable mount for a small tube (refractors up to 4" and reflectors up to 6" should work ok, provided the tube isn't too long).

mount head
tripod legs
eyepiece tray
dual axis drives & controller
(1) 5 lb. & (2) 2 lb. counterweights
12V cigarette lighter plug adapter
120V AC outlet to 15V DC adapter (over-voltage, but works fine)
original flex cables & knobs for manual operation

Sorry, battery, rings, & OTA not included. I'm selling to finance a goto conversion for a CG-5 type mount. It's yours for $100 plus shipping (it weighs 26 lbs., probably a few pounds more for when it's all boxed up). I accept PayPal, checks, or money orders. I can email you additional photos on request. Thanks.
