I'm selling a tripod and alt-az head that I built for my TV 101. It works, but it is not quite beefy enough for the TV 101 so I'm selling this to buy a commercial mount. The legs are made of solid oak and have been finished with varathane. The legs are about 5 feet long. I also built a tray with 4 1.25" holes and one 2" holes to strengthen the tripod. Everything connects with carriage bolts and hand knobs. The head is of my own design and rides on teflon and ebony star. The head is made of birch and is unfinished. My ST80 is wonderful to use on this mount and I have no problems with balance using plossl eyepieces. I have no doubt a Rnager, Pronto, or 90mm ShortTube refractor would also work very well on this mount.
$100 and I prefer a local buyer who can pick it up. If you are out of the area and are interested, please be advised that I will ask for all true shipping costs including whatever size box would be needed to ship.
