Hi. Selling a Takahashi 90s mount and a 6 x 30 Tak finder.

The mount is in very fine condition considering its age (probably 20 - 25 years) and works as if it were new. This mount works a lot like the EM-2 mounts that Takahashi sold until recently (maybe still does??). There is an RA drive with a hand controller that either stops the drive or makes it work at a double rate. The mount is powered by 4 D cells held in a small case. There is a DEC slo-motion that works very smoothly. The polar finder has been updated to 2015. When it was sold, this mount's capacity was rated at about 25 pounds, 10 pounds more than the EM-1 and EM-2 but not as high as the EM-200. There is no tripod with this sale but the tripod baseplate is included. A little paint has been rubbed off the end near the polar finder's eyepiece. $875 includes shipping in the CONUS.

The 6 x 30 finder works great and looks like new from the side when assembled. However, there are chips in the paint where the set screws meet the tube and you can see them if you make a point of looking for them. $125 includes shipping in the CONUS.
