I have a Meade DS 16 German Equatorial mount for sale. This is a heavy mount that can take a 12-16" Newtonian OTA. The RA drive assembly is a brand new 7.5" Byers Starmaster (this has the more expensive 6" clutch instead of the cheaper 4" clutch on the research grade), used once. RA drive is an AC hurst motor. I have put a small contact box, which powers the motor and has a switch for CW/CCW rotation. The mount was recently painted (Dec 2000) and is in excellent condition. Comes with 2 counter weights, approx 60lbs total.

The mount is shown in the pictures below. Note: OTA and ring are not part of the mount.

Price $1400+shipping (by freight carrier, it is usually cheaper)
