This is a great mount. Damp out time with 10" Reflector is less than 5 seconds. I bought this a couple of months ago from another Astromarter It is in very good functional condition. I mounted my 10" Hardin on it with with a homemade saddle,it actually handles the 10 Newt very well tracking with RA drive is very good even at high powers(4.8mm nagler with 2x barlow)with an eyeball polar alignment up to 15 minutes on Saturn and Jupiter before having to nudge the dec. a little. I am selling only because I am trying to get into CCD imaging and the lack of slow motion controls makes this difficult.But not impossible.I need to sell to help finance a new mount with slow motion and tracking on both axis. but is very good for observational use I can't describe how great it was not to have to move my tube every few seconds at high power to get a good long look at something.This unit will make a great mount for a 6"-10"newt. The unit breaks down and assembles in about 5 minutes with 2 allen wrenches.I would like to get what I paid for it I have done some minor refinishing and cleaning and lubrication.This is in very good mechanical condition.and provides a very stable base for my 10". I would like to get what I paid for it. $250 shipped.please see pic below(scope not included)Includes mount, pier AC RA Drive, 25 lbs. weights, and wheels . I can Provide other pics upon request just tell me what you want to see. Also the declination indicator markings are missing I did not really find this to be a problem. I was able locate most objects by calibrating my RA then set the scopes RA for the object of interest, and then slowly sweeping my declination through the area I knew it should be in. Please feel free to call me at the number in the ad heading or email me regarding any questions or iquiries you may have.

Thanks for looking
