With the help of a number of Astromart folks (thanks to all who helped!), I think I’ve figured out what I have now (and I’m reposting to represent it accurately.)
I have a Cave Astrola Deluxe EQ mount (1.5" shafts) which has ASTROLA on the main post (see photo). This might be the Classical Cassegrain mount due to the cradle size / shape. It appears to be in great shape and the play on both of the axis is minimal (less than .005-.01" play I would estimate.) Both axis motors work, and it glides very beautifully (ball bearings on both axis). It does have some minimal surface rust on the RA shaft and on the base of the mount.
Some additional questions
How far off the ground is the highest part of the mount? 45 ¾”
How high is the top of the pier (where the head joins?) 27 ½”How *long* is the DEC shaft from exit of lower bearing carrier? ~10 ¼” from the exit of the bearings. Does it have the ring/worm gear Dec assembly? Handbox? It has the Ring/Worm gear for the Dec as well as the RA and it has a simple handbox.
The problem, this thing is HEAVY ~45-60lbs), and I'm moving out of state in the near future so I don't want to take it with me.
Possible solution, I could disassemble the base, legs, the head, and the weight and ship as 4 boxes. OR, you could pick up. I will use a professional to pack and ship from 80525. OR, you can pick it up in person in Fort Collins, CO. This is likely to run a bit, so prepare for a ~$140 fee (I’d estimate packing will run in the $60 range and shipping in the $80 range.) (I’m moving to Northern CA. in ~6 weeks, just NE of Sacremento and could arrange to bring it with me.)
What I’m looking for are offers / bids... highest wins I’ll be out of town on a business trip with erratic email access until I return on Saturday September 27th. I will however, be getting back with everyone concerning their offers-questions when I return and make my decision by Monday evening as to the winning bidder.
