I picked up at an estate sale what appears to be either a knock-off of the Barska Jumbo Binocular Telescope or an OEM version of it and now I need a mount.  Any recommendations?

There are a number of similar Chinese binocular telescopes made in the same place but perhaps with slightly differing specs and sold under various brands.  Your BT is likely one of them.

Oberwerk sells a very reasonably priced "Manfrotto knockoff" tripod/ head that will work with 100mm BTs.  I wouldn't go any lighter than this if you're referring to a 100mm and it's in the 13-15 lb range...

Enjoy your new BT!
