Cloudy Nights will NEVER send any kind of "official" transaction notification. Cloudy Nights is purely a 3rd party that offers a forum for sellers and buyers to sell equipment. All correspondence will ALWAYS be between the seller and the buyer. Cloudy Nights has NO participation in these transactions nor do we have any kind of "Cloudy Nights transaction account". We only provide the medium (our classifieds section) for which the two parties can interact. If you receive any kind of correspondence that makes claims such as: " transaction Approved!", "Cloudy Nights purchase protection" or emails claiming to be the "Cloudy Nights Team"... you can be confident that these are frauds. Bottom line is to use common sense!

SOLD IT! ($75.00) Excellent 85534



Description: This is a vintage Meade Equatorial mount - no OTA included with this item. I guess you could say it's a pier style unit. It's been sitting in my garage for about six years. I converted the original 10" Meade reflector to a Dobsonian mount. The rings on this mount will accommodate a reflector OTA with an outside diameter of 12-1/2". (You could probably fudge on the diameter by drilling additional holes in the rings.) The price is $75.00 plus actual shipping. This item weighs a lot, so be prepared for a substantial amount for shipping.

I plugged in the motor and you can hear it run. It rotated about 1/4 degree in about 20 minutes. All I will guarantee is that when you plug in the motor, you will hear it run.

I rechecked the movement of the motor and am not convinced it is advancing properly. No guarantee on the motor - this does not change the price though.
