This mount is reminiscent of those made by ASTRO-PHYSICS.

DTA PALOMAR CONTROLLER with joystick
Remote control is possible with this system via a modem (without PC) or via a network interface through the CONSOLE mode that allows complete management of the instrument via a serial channel.
I have not attempted to use the control system on this mount as the tube it carried did not fit into the dome with sufficient clearance. Prospective buyers are welcome to try it out.
All in all, a heavy-duty equatorial, suitable for the 14.5" f5 ota featured in my other advertisement.
FREE:The short pier and substantial wheeled base is included, to aid movement of the mount during installation. They can be used to support the mount and to swing the tube in a limited number of directions. The wheeled base legs have been specially treated so that they can be left outside, unprotected, without degradation. Locking screws with rubber bases are another feature
Prospective buyers will need to mount the equatorial head on a higher pier to obtain ground clearance for the ota in its vertical and near-vertical positions.
I am asking £3 000 ovno.
Please note that the telescope ota is not included in this sale.
Thank you for looking at my advertisement.
