Skyview deluxe alt-az mount & extension column

I find myself with too many mounts so have decided to let this one go. It is the Bintel Deluxe Skyview mount and extension column. No tripod is included but it will fit to any Vixen/Synta EQ5 type tripod with 10mm bolt if you remove the North/South alignment peg.

The mount was painted Tak green by the previous owner. The paint job is no longer in perfect condition as per the photos but it isn't flaking off or anything in normal use.

There is a bit of play (tilt) in the azimuth bearing but I found this was only an issue with the mount arm in the vertical position. The arm can be repositioned at 45 and in this configuration the play was negligible. If you have DIY skills you can probably take the mount apart and fix it easily but this is beyond my ability!

Only one slow motion knob is included but these aren't hard to find.

Asking $150 or nearest offer.

Enquiries by PM please.
