ha a 76mm 910 focal Length Tasco Refactor on an EQ mount back in the 1970s, so ha used an EQ mount. Think I will be more precise now, as back then it was just guessing.

I also got a compass, 6X30 spotting Scope, photoeyepiece -- wrong T-mount, see my swap ad; with that mount for that $40 price. Will set up from setting circles our attitude.

Yes knew I may have to sort out that tripod head.
