I am the original owner and have used this mount with small refractors and DLSRs.
The mount is rated to 12 pounds so don’t expect to put an 8″ SCT on it but 5″ SCTs and Maks weigh about 9 pounds or less as did the 80mm f/6 refractor I used successfully with this mount. I also used a 40mm PST H-alpha scope with it. It runs on 8 AA batteries or an adapter. Will also include the hard case that I keep the mount in.
I am asking $100 for the mount, if I do not have to ship it. If interested, email me at JamesDixonLR at Gmail.com. Thanks for looking.
