12.5" Newtonian with GEM and accessories. This one has been available for a few weeks and the owner just dropped the price $1,000 to $800. The OTA looks to be in great shape with a curved spider and fully flocked. However, the mount has seen better day. Does anyone know what kind of mount that is?
The mount looks like an ATM job or a heavily modified commercial mount (I'm thinking its more of an ATM job). The rotating rings though look like they are from a Cave.
The mount looks to me like it needs to be headed for the junk yard!
I don't think you appreciate "making what you need out of what you have" engineering.
