This mount has bronze worm gears, which are stronger then typical aluminum (less flexure). Drive has been re-lubed w/white grease similiar to CG5 mod. Very smooth motion w/ minimal backlash.
Includes slow-motion controls, 2 7.5lb counterweights, owners manual and original shipping carton.
Does not include polar axis scope or the orig aluminum tripod.

I do have the tripod mount plate. It had cracked (see pic) and was repaired using JB Weld. Its still functional, and I've used it with the original aluminum tripod legs (filled with concrete) without incident for about a year.

Add a pair of homemade hardwood legs (or from Als Astro) and you've got an excellent mount for a 4"APO,6"Mak, 8"SCT or a short 6"-8" Newt.
Will ship CONUS.
