Mount and tripod only. Older, heavier equatorial mount with home-made, height adjustable, wooden tripod. I used it with a Stellarvue 102mm, mounted in one picture to give an idea of it's size, not included... All stainless hardware on the tripod, the black around the feet is six coats of Plasti-dip spray to protect wood from dirt/moisture and should peel off if undesired. Wood is finished in two coats of satin linseed oil. Not sure what type of wood it is, got it from work and planed it down; it's a soft, lightweight wood. Some of the twist knobs look like they were exposed to a solvent at one point, they work perfectly but look kinda bad... you can see this in the pics on the weight's twist knobs. The degree scale around the bottom is loose and needs re-hot-glued and if you turn the base counter-clockwise enough, the fastening bolt in the bottom will loosen (not a big deal as once set there's no reason to ever turn it...).

Condition is used but works. Only selling due to upgrade (Skytee 2 mount/tripod). Shipped CONUS for $150, I'll absorb paypal, need it gone for room...

PM me with further questions.
