My $50 60mm Mayflower bought off craigslist 5 miles from my house. Got lucky.

Have to love the 60 mm Mayflowers     my 814 was so sweet     loved the little functional alt az mount mine had     the Mannon like gray finish to it with the creamy white tube and nice wooden legs    it had the world's smallest but cute finder scope. If there ever was a one-handed grab and go   this was it

Okay, I'm going to have to put this one in here:

I just put it back in my shop fully assembled just like this.  Carried it with one hand under the drive base, and the other hand keeping the tripod legs from stabbing me in the shins.  I do rather hate that tripod, but it is very steady in use.  I'm taking it with me to Utah tomorrow.

Here's a great Grab & Go, weighing in at 8-1/2 lbs for a Sears Tower 60mm, the whole thing tripod and

all. I thought it was very lightweight that is why I weighed it.

Made in 1961 and a favorite of mine.
