Meade didn't sell many and they are rare. OTOH Celestron still sells a successor model.

I hate to resurrect a dead thread, but does anyone know of a source for a manual for this mount?
Came across this post in my search for more info on this mount. From what I can find, Meade used these in the 1980's and I believe they were made by Mizar? Does anyone have any info. on these old Gems? I just purchased one but no manual and not much info about it. I need to find a nice wooden tripod for it and an RA motor that I could make work on the mount. Any info. would be most appreciated.
