This is a one-owner instrument. The tripod is very stable and in the low position lets the seated (three-legged stool NOT INCLUDED) observer view objects at the horizon. Convenient seated viewing of most of the night sky is accomplished by cranking the tripod's geared head up and down. Close to zenith (see photo) viewing with the fork mount is attainable. The tripod mechanics allows all viewing to also be accomplished with the observer in a standing position. Asking price: $2800 (Cash, cashier's check, PayPal). Buyer pays packing & shipping. Uncrated weight (BT125-A, case, tripod, soft case, and accessories) is around 75 pounds.
