Several years ago I had (and foolishly sold) this homemade, "Rob Moore" alt-az mount.  He built these for AP 130mm and 155mm.  Does anyone know if he still makes them?  Anyone have one?  It was a cool mount for star parties.

Since no one else replied yet, I thought would mention, have you thought about reaching out to Stellafane org.  It looks like they have a lot of home built equipment links on their site.    There might be something else out there that is similar in design.

Do some searching for Berry style mounts in the ATM forum.....there have been a number of them written up over the years as ATM's built them....
