I am helping a lady find a new home for a telescope mount and OTA that her deceased husband acquired as a project. The telescope mount is very massive. I would estimate it weight at around 300 pounds. The OTA is missing the optics. The OTA probably once held an eight or nine inch mirror and is about eight feet long. This telescope was probably made around 1920 or so. The OTA is made of steel with lots of brass fittings. The mount has large bronze drive gears that are about one inch thick. The owner is looking for someone to provide this telescope a new home. She is not asking any money for it. If she can't find a new home for it she will be contacting the local scrap yard. Serious persons only need reply and I will provide the owner's contact information.
