You got to see this Utube video of the mount.

Dave has 16 videos of Unitron equipment on Utube. Is he one of the posters within this group?

Amazing! I love the drive mechanism and pier on the clone. Is that by the way, the same 4 inch Unitron clone tat was on eBay a week or two ago that we were discussing in this forum?

Fascinating clock drive mechanism for adjusting the tracking. A good video, I enjoyed watching it.

Yes, that's the same one! The pictures on the ad show the unique clock drive mechanism.

I love all the other videos Dave made. Maybe we can in some manner ask our moderator if we can post a permanent link to those videos. That is something that clearly belongs in the classic section.
