I've got the same mount here. Hmm. Nah, too much work dragging that thing out...

You have too many scopes and mounts collecting dust. I'll take them off you hands, drive to Oklahoma, pick em up, transport to Florida. All at no cost to you. LOL

You know, there are days when I would ALMOST take you up on that.
Like last night, when we were trying to remember the last time we saw clear skies here... it's been two weeks at least. There were enough sucker holes for me to try out the Brandon 80 f/6 and I was quite impressed with it. Glad I bought it.
I had the GT100-45s up too with just the stock Chinese 24mm eyepieces and when we could see it was pretty impressive. Not a lot of color for an f/6 achromat. I didn't get the trailer out because I didn't know what the condition of the road to our dark sky site would be after all the rain (it's pretty bad) and it's too much hassle to get it all out and down there and parked and set up for... nothing. So I went light.
Took my daughter and her little Towa-made Swift 60 f/11 and everyone there was surprised how sharp and contrasty it was. We had a few holes and put it on Venus and Saturn both and it was quite good... what little we saw of the Moon was awesome, too.

clear skies and big scopes,
