This is the older style, with metal knobs, alt-az mount as sold by UNITRON in the 1950s and early 1960s. It originally had a 3" f/15 refractor. Mechanically mount is excellent. A real joy to use compared to most of today's alt-az mounts with motion controls. There is some brassing to the knobs and clamping wingnuts consistent with use. Also a scratch to one slo-mo knob. Not deep but into the brass. See photo. Paint and wood legs show some minor wear but no damage. There are two sets of holes where the lower legs attach. One set is filled. I assume this was done to change the mount height. Also, extra holes have been drilled into the mounting rail at some point. These can be easily filled and painted if desired. Original wooden eyepiece tray is also present and in great condition. I can send more photos if requested. PayPal is OK for cash but not a credit card.
