I am selling a nearly-new Takahashi Sky Patrol II equatorial mount. The Mount includes all standard accessories (Sky Patrol II equatorial head, one 1.6 lb. counterweight, motor drive, hand controller, adjustable wedge) and also several Takahashi extras (additional 1.6 lb. counterweight, polar axis scope, Berlebach wooden tripod).
The Sky Patrol II mount is a great travel mount for a small refractor, a good companion on eclipse chasing expeditions or a nice platform (with an optional adapter from Takahashi) for mounting a wide angle camera for panoramic sky photos. The head breaks down into two main pieces and actually fits inside a moderately sized camera bag.
I used this as a travel mount for a Takahashi FS-60C which I sold recently. It is in pristine condition, and includes the Takahashi certificate and original box. New this mount and the extras would be over $900. I am offering it for just $700.
My preference is to find a local buyer in the San Francisco bay area/Northern California. I am willing to deliver in a 150-mile radius of San Jose, CA. If shipping for a non-local is required, the cost of shipping will be added.
Thanks for looking!
