This is the mount that comes with the Meade 114EQ. I was hoping to use the mount with my Short Tube 80 and CCD camera. The goal was an ultra-portable imaging setup.
It worked fine visually but, alas it didn't track well enough for imaging.
The mount is fairly small and comes with the Meade Starfinder goto motors, handbox, counterweight and battery pack (uses 10 AA batteries). Also included are the manual and allen wrench to attach the motors.
I did drill out the threaded holes on the mounting plate to accomodate 1/4-20 bolts. This was done so I could mount the short tube 80. I will include a wood "plate" with 1/4-20 bolts and wing nuts. All you have to do is mount your optics to the wood "plate".
Used just long enough to try it out. $100.00 + shipping.
Thanks for looking,
