I acquired a 8" with what appears to be a Anchor mount, and it has a clock drive.Note that the castings don't have any markings like the Edmund ones.I seem to remember that these with the red knobs (90 degrees to side on polar axis) were in the Jaegers catalog in Sky and Tel back in the 70's.By the way, does anyone know about the wooden legs for these?

Quote:Hey! I'd sure like more info on the mount you pictured.
Quote:The exact same kind of counterweight is here, sold as an Edmund, but it didn't match anything Edmund.
Quote:Do you have any more info on anchoring down the mount ID?
Quote:I believe the mount you pictured is for a 6" reflector.
Quote:My Edmund 8" is a monster brute compared to my 6". The 6" has a 1" diameter counter shaft, and the 8" is 1.5" diameter.
