I just acquired via trade a Unitron #128 mount. (I had two previously, but none in awhile). I was able to trade an early model TeleVue Gibraltar to get this Unitron mount. Thanks Terra!

The latitude adjustment collar on the newly acquired Unitron #128 mount is specific for higher latitudes (40 degrees and above) and I am at 30 degrees north latitude, so the collar does not work for me. The three component pieces separate when trying to go below 40 degrees. (Unitron had specific collars, I think 3 different ones, based upon the purchaser's latitude)

Thinking that someone else may have the opposite problem - they have a connecting collar that does not allow for adjustment for anything outside of a limit of 25 to 35 degrees, and they are further north; maybe you could use the one I have and I can positively use the one that you have. So how about a trade? Also willing to purchase a surplus one appropriate for my latitude. Please let me know. Very happy to work a deal. Trade or cash.
