New Equatorial Platform (Compact Model) for 16"-18" dobs. Naturally,
excellent for smaller scopes. As you probably know, 7-8 months are
required for delivery. In the interim, I became unbalanced and
decided to pursue, not wisdom, but aperture. Ergo, have no need for
this fascinating and superbly built platform.
I've used it only once out of curiosity and it tracked amazingly while
only vaguely pointed North. It is designed for Latitude 39N,
but works a few degrees above and below. It's the latest version
with the more subtle south bearing and has a hand control for tracking
accuracy. New price is $1325 plus shipping with the dreaded waiting
period. Your price is $1100 plus immediate shipping in the US.
