This is an mid-2000s Meade ETX-125EC fork mount and comes with its matching #497 Autostar handset and cable. This was Supercharged by Dr. Clay and as such, has the appropriate placard. But there is an issue with this mount...

The declination engages perfectly. The right ascension drive no longer responds. There is no play issues with the base; it locks firm and when loosened, rotates very smoothly as it should. But for some odd reason, this late June, the servo drive stopped responding. The controller does not throw-up a bad code warning. And busy as I am, I don't have the time to take this mount apart and see to its issues.
Sad, because this mount was a fantastic tracker and when properly star aligned, it was very accurate at the go-to.

So know you are getting an absolutely perfect Autostar handset and a fork mount that is in very excellent cosmetic condition on all accounts; you just gotta figure out what is up with the right ascension servo.

Weighs 7 pounds 12 ounces as it sits.

Price doesn't include shipping. Will ship to anyone anywhere.


  • Condition very excellent
