That really looks like the mount that came with my father's very cheap 6" Newtonian. I can't remember the brand, but it was a department store scope.

The tube rest channel seems pretty severe (like 90 degrees maybe) for a 6" newt but who knows? It definitely appears to be an alt-az mount....A surveyor's maybe? I'll have the mount in my hands in a couple of days for a thorough look.
