Wooden fork mount designed for a 6" Mak-Cass that I never bought.

Made of maple, UHMW plastic bearings, and stainless steel hardware. Azimuth bearing is 3.5" and altitude bearing is 2.5" in diameter; movement is smooth. Wood has not been glued nor finished. You will need to figure out how to mount it to your tripod (one shown in picture not included) and how to mount your scope to it. Comes with an extra foot of maple stock for any further modifications (riser blocks for example).

Will accomodate an OTA of 7.5" in diameter and a "balanced rear end length" of 8.5" to reach zenith.

Made with portability in mind... it weighs about 4 pounds.

Being that this is the latest in laser guided, gps equipped, power-star(tm) mounts, I will accept $50, shipping included anywhere in the USA or Canada.
