For Sale
Status: Withdrawn  Advert Category: Mount-Pier-Tripod  Advert # 126245
Custom Made German Equatorial Mount.
160lbs load capacity. PRICE REDUCTION

This mount is reminiscent of those made by ASTRO-PHYSICS.
It was custom-made for the 14.5" ota featured in my other advertisement.
Specifications (from original advertisement by its previous owner)
RA and DEC gear 360 tooth D 190mm in B14 bronze with setting circle divisions.
Stainless steel worms d 19.5mm
Stainless steel counterweights, painted white; 2 x20kg 1 x15kg
Stainless steel counterweight shaft diameter 60mm
Saddle plate base 250mm
Instrument weight capacity 80kg
Latitude setting from 10 to 70 degrees
Azimuth setting 15-30 degrees/turn
LOSMANDY pole finder - new model
P.E. 9"arc

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.
