As much as I have enjoyed this mount, it is time now to pass it on to someone else who will use and appreciate it as much as I have. I originally owned a "T" mount, then after looking for a "TM", I found this one in Europe and I must say it is a pleassure to use it. It can hold larger OTAs than the "T" (I regularly used a 150 Mak, or my Takahashi 102FC) and now it tracks the stars. The motor drive is pretty simple but it does its job admirably which is a big improvement over the T. It is heavier and thus more solid as well. The graduated circles are beautiful. Its overall state is excellent as you can see from the pictures, which is not easy on these units. The drive is 220V, but you can get an adaptor if not in Europe to make it work. I am selling the mount head with the counterweight bar, and one weight. No tripod or OTA. Asking for what I paid. I can consider some partial trades for certain CZ items, such as Telementor 1, or driveless T mount.
