Little used (if at all) Universal Astronomics "T-Mount" parallelogram alt/az mount with generic base. Rated at 25lbs capacity, likely more weights needed for that though.

This is quite large and heavy, spans 27" wide as shown at its smallest, 36" with full extension of the weight bar, stands 18" tall and weighs a bit over 22lbs. Has a rubber covered Ivanco brand 5lb barbell weight as a counterweight. More weights could be found at Big 5 or some such outlet. Scope/saddle mounting plate measures 4" x 8" and is quick release by loosening two wing nuts and sliding the plate off.

Base measures 4-7/16" at its widest, bolt pattern is not perfectly regular, spacing between them varies a bit is on the order of 1-1/4", pattern is on about a 5-1/2" circle but again a bit erratic. Depending on what you put this on you might have to drill new holes.

Very well engineered and built, uses Oilite bronze bearings on the parallelogram axles. Movement is quite smooth without me having done any cleaning or refurbishment after being in dry storage for decades, according to the seller.
Current price is about $500 but would include a saddle.

$200, buyer pays shipping for the 25lb box measuring 30x22x8 from Chico, CA 95926, local pickup OK
PayPal preferred but not required, no fee.
