|Light Speed Wagon alt-az fork mount. Reduced More.|
I am selling my rare Light Speed Telescopes Wagon alt-az fork mount (one of only 44 made).
Built by Charles Riddel of Half-Hitch telescope mount fame.
Half Hitch is no longer producing his larger capacity mounts.
This is a true machinist's work of art.
Payload capacity of 60 pounds - easily holds a 5" to 6" refractor or current 100mm to 120mm Binocular Telescopes.
Only the mount head is for sale.
Includes the following:
Light Speed Telescopes Mount head
Dual high resolution encoders (one on each axis - alt/az) with cables
Dual slow motion controls (one on each axis - alt/az)
Light Speed telescope digital setting circle unit (identical to NGC-Max unit)
Dovetail mount system with adjustable mount plate
Dedicated dovetail mounting unit to fit Astro Physics tripod ($275 US option)
The custom mounting unit allows day mounting to an Astro Physics tripod (not included) via 3 included mounting screws or to a standard tripod via 3/8" bolt.
Alternatively the LS Wagon can be directly attached to a Losmandy GM8 or GM11 tripod /12" Losmandy extension via 3 bolts or Losmandy TKS (tripod knob set). This is how I used this system.
It is in excellent condition.
Encoders and DSC unit fully tested.
Hi Resolution photos too large to upload.

Selling for $1900 or best serious offer.
Payment via PayPal - buyer pays the fee or bank draft/money order (needs 10 business days to clear the bank)
Buyer pays shipping/insurance charges via Canada Post.
