Sold 9/23. Thanks.

Includes the following:
- Equatorial head w/built-in polar scope
- Two counterweights
- Counterweight shaft
- Dual Axis drive w/hand controller and battery pack(takes 6 AA's).
- 11" dovetail mounting plate
- RA and Dec manual adjustment knobs
- Accessory tray
- Adjustable height wood tripod

This mount has served for many years and shows the wear.
There are some scratches and ding marks on the tripod and tray and some cosmetic signs of wear on the head itself. The Dec motor cover will not clip to the motor so you will have to secure it by someway. The extension of the RA worm is slightly bent; this induces a little wobble in the end of the extension as it turns, but does not seem to affect the tracking smoothness or accuracy at all (the worm itself is not affected).

Even though is has been used extensively, its still is a wonderful portable mount for visual use or it makes a great camera tracking platform.

Asking $375 which includes shipping via tracked UPS Ground within the CONUS. Check or Money order, or paypal (+3% to cover paypal fee). Let me know if you have any questions. I have a few more pictures available on request.
