Advertised as FS50, it an FC50 with much fungus too. Maybe has coating damage....

I would pass.  Could have etched the glass. I have a hanker for a Q4 for some reason.

Just a C-8. 

 

That dome was pricey back in the day ray.  Just a normal late 70's or early 80's C8.

What's also odd to me is the price. It seems kind of high. That same seller sold a couple of fork mounted C14s not long ago for $3000 and $2000. 

 

The same surplus company is also selling this Titan mount on a heavy duty pier for $3800 opening bid (no bids yet and only 13 hours to go). Price seems pretty good for what you're getting. But, I'm no expert.

It might end up in your lap too if those screws don't hold! It looks like it's hanging on for dear life.

I notice there is no Gemini controller or hand paddle included.  Neither are there any counterweights.  By the time you purchase the additional components it brings the cost pretty close to new.  Bummer.....

Wow.  A bit on the pricey side, but the condition looks to be excellent plus, and it includes the correct wedge and tripod, as well as a good compliment of accessories.

 

It's not a steal, but somebody will be making a good buy on that one.
