SOLD!! Thanks, Jason!!

I thought I had sold this one before, but it turned out there was a problem with the Dec shaft that I didn't know about. I had bought it just for the OTA that was on it, and the mount hadn't been used for a few years before that. During that time, the Dec shaft had frozen due to grease turning to glue. It would turn using the motor, or using the slo-mo control, but it wouldn't turn by hand. Oops...

It's now been taken apart and regreased, and it works fine, as do the RA and Dec drive motors. There is a noticeable dent on the bottom of the mount housing where it attaches to the tripod, but it doesn't appear to hurt the performance any. Aside from that, it's in very good shape. It does not have a polar axis finder.

Thanks a lot. Keep looking up,
