Repost of previous ad. This is a nice solid heavy duty german equatorial mount on a very stable aluminum tripod with casters. Capable of heavy loads to 100# and for reference the mounting plate is 61" off the ground in the picture. 7.5" nylon RA gear with large brass worm (about 1" diameter x 4" length), take out the extension tube to use for newts. No Dec drive but would be easy to put aftermarket drive on it (email for more details). 27# counterweight, slo-motion RA control is very smooth, hand knobs all around to make it easier to reset axes, etc. Very stable and extremely well made. I asked $850 before and still think its a fair price given the quality and stability, but obviously this was too much - I'm willing to hear any offers for cash or astro trade items. Ideally FS60C/FC60 range small apos, 10+" dobs or mirrors, other interesting stuff, or of course cash - try me. Happy to answer e-mail queries or provide additional pics to seriously interested parties. Thanks.
