This is an old, heavy-duty equatorial mount from the 60's. 1.5" steel shafts in cast iron housings. The polar axis has roller bearings while the declination shaft rides on the casting (all motions smooth).

I currently have no counter weights to go with the mount but the dec shaft has been machined down to 1" to accommodate standard weights.

The center peir is 4" ID and is made of thick steel. The legs are cast iron as well. A 75 lbs (+) OTA should not be a problem for this Giagantor.

It has a drive gear, worm gear, clutch, setting circles, motor, and motor mount. I'm not sure if they are original (they look to be the same age) but everything seems to still work good - the motor seems to track fine.

This would make a rock steady mount for many a Newtonan OTA.

I'm asking $395 shipped anywhere in the CONUS.

Steady Skies Y'all,
