Got an ETX90 OTA that needs a base? I just upgraded my ETX to an EC mount, and my virtually unused non-computerized early ETX base {with forks) can be yours.

This one has the heavy steel plate base cover, and the dec and ra locks work fine. The internal motor is the teardrop shaped motor/gearbox sealed assembly, with the usual "takeup" before it tracks, none of the Weasner site modifications have yet been made. Simple, and efficient.

I liked the steel plate base since it let me securely and safely mount it, using the latitude leg holes, to a fullsize B&L wedge or Celestron tabletop wedge (the latter with hardware store bar to secure the lower bolt) for rock solid equatorial mounting- forget those ETX tripods!

No OTA, no tabletop legs or tabletop leg hole caps. Looks and works like new. Not for Autostar, of course.

$70 + actual Priority Mail shipping cost, I'll pay the insurance.
