Here is the complete "top-end" of a Meade #395 equatorial mount for sale.

What is offered here is only the 'top-end'. I've used the hub & legs for another project. Includes the original counterweight, a pair of 13" slo-mo cables and a Meade #531 RA clock-drive in perfect condition. With a little ingenuity a base can be made for for this mount.

I'll also throw in a home-made 20ga. "saddle plate" (not pictured) that I made for this mount if you want it. I made it to hold a C8 OTA (using 1/2" wide nylon cable-ties) but the OTA proved a bit too heavy for this mount. Oh well, that was just an experiment for a boring rainy afternoon. I have a picture of it if your interested - just email me.

Make me a "shipping included" offer and see if I bite. I don't expect to make a fortune on this stuff but I won't "give" it away. It'll cost a bit to ship with the heavy (5-lb?) counterweight so please consider that in your offer. Can ship without the counterweight if you wish to save a few bucks on shipping.

Will consider selling the #531 drive separately if the price is right.

Will accept PayPal, US Postal Money Order(only!), or well concealed cash.

Thanks for looking,
