Selling my Tak EM-2 mount (non-USD version) in excellent condition. Includes equatorial head w/counterweight, wooden tripod, accessory tray, and polar finder.
I used this mount quite happily with an FS-78, which it held quite solidly. It's also done a very good job with a 100mm f/10 and an 80mm f/15. It takes a Losmandy dovetail plate and so can be used with any suitably-sized scope with rings
This mount is portable enough to carry on family trips (I've done it more than once without a problem.) and light enough to carry to the back yard fully assembled- very convenient. The power source is a battery pack that takes 4 D-cells. The current crop of batteries has lasted at least 6 months and is still going strong. I have mixed feelings about selling this mount because it's been so nice to have and use. But I've bought a larger reflector and it needs a G-11.
Anacortes sells the USD II version of this mount for $2214. I'm asking $1300 with split shipping.
