I seem to be looking for something that's rare.   It is an equatorial mount for a 10-inch Newtonian.  The tube weighs 17 pounds and needs straps to hold it.  Do mounts like this exist any more?  I couldn't find anything that size in the classifieds.  Attached is a picture of the tube.

I'd use an astrophysics 900, 1100, 1200, Mach 2, etc. Other beast that could handle it are Losmandy G11, Software Bisque Robotic Paramount MYT Mount, etc.

Dwight, you might consider putting a want ad on Astromart. These were popular years ago, so someone has to have one that's no longer used. You might get a very good deal.

How about a Meade Starfinder Mount for a 10" Reflector? Good Luck.
