For sale is a Meade Digital Series 2090 robotic go-to altazimuth mount and tripod for their 90mm f/8.8 refractor. This is complete, minus the Autostar handset and ota. It will come with the mount, optical tube mounting clamp, aluminum tripod, underside locking bolt for fastening the mount to the tripod hub, tray spreader, side mounted accessory tray. All you need is the telescope of your choice that will fit the ring and an Autostar handset.

These single arm mounts can have their ring clamp assembly changed and you can use other model clamps for their 70mm and 60mm refractors as well. This will NOT hold a EXT-90 optical tube.

This mount will work with the older and newer Autostar handsets. Unlike the older Celestron Nexstar handsets, this mount is not picky on which generation it communicates with. Very nifty.

Cosmetics are very excellent on everything. Leg clamps work perfectly. Tripod folds perfectly. No corrosion in the battery pack or terminals. The mount clocks and slews, I tested it on a 492 and a 497 Meade handsets and it moves well.

Remember that this mount is locked in horizontal motions. You need the handset for that. Vertical motions can be made without the handset; loosen the lovely, machined Meade-logo lock knob for manual motion.

If you want just the tray with bolts: $8
If you want the full tripod setup: $22
If you want the mount only: $30
