Beautiful, lightweight german equatorial mount, perfect for smaller scopes
like the FS-78 or Sky 90. It's even fine for visual use for the FS-102 which
is how I've been using it, (as well as non-Tak scopes). Here are some specs:

Load capacity: 20 lbs
Gross weight: 23 lbs
Tracking accuracy: 10 arc seconds
Polar Finder: built in, with 5 arc second accuracy
Motor drive: Sidereal, with N/S switch
Slewing speed: (RA) 0 or 2x
Operating voltage: 6v
Power consumption: 130 mA

Also included: Takahashi FC-L tripod and I'm also including polar scope illuminator that I purchased from TN.

Mount in excellent condition, not a scratch, whisper quiet and extremely accurate.

Tripod also in excellent condition, but does show some wear, (minor scratches on the legs), and the caps of 2 of the 3 "anti-slip bolts" were cracked from a previous move. I have repaired them, but wanted to be honest. These bolts do not bear any weight so is no concern to the performance of the setup.

Asking $1300. No paypal please.

Note: Will be biased toward offers in the PNW to help any shipping concerns.

Thanks for looking - Mike
