It's taken me a while to figure this out being new to the hobby and inheriting this from my Dad. Many thanks to Dan S. and Highpoint Scientific for the help. Of course it's cloudy, raining and flooding here in Texas.......

Bill, Don from Michigan pointed me in the direction of Highpoint Scientific in NJ. Dave helped me to pick a mount beefy enough to hold this 25 lb fella, without breaking the bank! Found this C5 SGT mount on Astromart and picked it up local. I got the diagonal and TV EP from Highpoint. I also had Ken make me some 133mm rings.
