University Optics Equatorial Mount with base plate for mounting to pier or heavy duty tripod. This is a heavy duty mount capable of carrying at least 40 to 50 pounds, probably more. 1.5" shafts, oilite bronze bearings, large clutch. All sand cast aluminum and steel shafts. Weighs about 30 pounds +/-. I also have an 11# weight for it. Importantly, comes with a base plate that makes mounting very easy. Condition is excellent, with minimal wear.

This is a manual mount. The green thing next to the head is a foot long ruler for scale. It is my understanding that it is not too hard to add drive gears, motors, and electronics for both RA and DEC axes. (I am selling Losmandy motors and electronics in a separate ad)

This thing retails on the UO website for $449. I will sell for $280 shipped CONUS. If you purchase my Losmandy electronics simultaneously, we can deal, otherwise price is firm.

Thanks for looking. If interested contact me for references, shipping and payment terms, etc.
