I purchased this mount used about a year ago for use with my high-end binoculars. The fact is, low power viewing just doesn't excite me enough to warrant owning such a setup, although I must admit that there's nothing quite like a binocular view of M31, so I'm selling both the binoculars and this T&T mount. Stock aluminum mount is in perfect mechanical condition and includes 2 counter weights. I believe that this mount is rated for 10 lbs and can confirm that it worked nicely with 6 lb binocular on board. In addition to mount in the image, I have the second counterweight and an L shaped adapter for mounting binoculars (doesn't fit all binos). Tripod not included but avaiable for an additional $150. Many thanks for considering!
