Up for sale is my S-B mount by Sergio Bonilla. This mount has served me well for many outreach events and quick observing sessions, but these days I have a baby so time is limited and I've only been doing astrophotography since COVID took hold. This mount includes a Sky-Watcher pier extension, but I reinforced the threads with steel inserts so you can actually tighten this thing down properly (unlike the original threads in the soft aluminum adapter plate which strip very easily). Also, if you have a Losmandy tripod I have an adapter that will work with that too, it would just be an extra $70.

the mount also includes a dual-series ADM clamp and a long, extended handle that was sold by Agena Astro and I think made for the Vixen Porta II mount. All of this was able to beautifully support my SkyWatcher ProED 120 as well as an 8" SCT and a friend's 100mm binoculars on an L-bracket. 

I will split the cost of shipping, but if you want to use PayPal rather than Venmo (or a cash pickup) then please add $10 to the order as this comes in just a bit less than the 3% PayPal charges. I will ship either FedEx or UPS ground, whichever you prefer, but shipping is limited to the lower 48 (unless you want to foot the whole shipping bill). 

(I will also disassemble the handle for transportation and make sure to pack extra securely around the bearings and tension knobs)
