Looking to sell my older model EQ-2 type mount with wood tripod. This mount is likely from the early 70's in Japan. The head is very solid and just had all the old grease removed and was then re-lubed with teflon/silicon type grease. The EQ head has slow motion cables, a chrome c/w and a clamp for a 2.4" tube. The clamp could easily be removed and replaced (2 bolts) to match your requirements.

The tripod shows the years but serves its purpose well. It has an accessory tray drilled for .965" eyepieces that mounts between the legs.

With a 2.4" f/15 OTA mounted, the vibration from a tap of the tube or a tripod leg damps out in a couple (2 or 3) seconds.

This mount would be great to upgrade that good performing OTA on an inexpensive alt-az mount or use it with a short tube scope as a quick grab and go set up.

The EQ-2 mount from Orion is $149.99. For this older, but more stable version, I am asking $90.00 plus shipping. Thanks for looking.
