This is a very nicely machined fork mount for an 8" schmidt cassegrain telescope or other similar size scope. Feature a 8.25" diameter worm gear with nice bronze driving worm. Very well made and very sturdy. Polar shaft is about 2" diameter and has large bearings. The drive has a very smooth clutch and full size setting circles that can be rotated independently. Needs a power cord attached to the power wires. Distance between mounting trunions is 9.25" about right for a C8. The knuckle allows for latitude adjust with a large tightening nut. Needs a power cord attached to the power wires. Easy job just two wires. This is left from a project left unfinished. Lots of work and money went into this. Asking price is much less than the price of the worm gears alone. Sold as is for your application.

Price is $245.00 plsu $38.00 shipping in the conus.
