FTX Mount

For Sale .... FTX Mount ... Will take a lot of weight ( and I mean a lot ...!! ) .... have seen these Mounts with AP140 Scopes on them.

I have shown ' various ' Scopes I've used over the years on this Mount .... it is ' VERY Smooth ' and ' Glides ' with a ' 1 ' finger touch.

Does not move when ' bumped ' as the ' Cam Levers ' secure it in place nicely.

Proper ' Bearings ' on Both Axis ensure smooth control at all times.

I'm thinking around the $900.00 mark ... they are well over that ( in the order of US $1500 + Freight + GST ) and have to be imported from USA .... this would be a significant savings over our current ' exchange rate '


here is a Review ..... https://www.cloudynights.com/article...turn-x-f-r2906



Watch Video here ..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEPqyJL0-YA



Postage would be at ' cost ' to your Post Code.

PM if keen ....Col.


EDIT ....The Mount Base is secured to the Tripod by a 3/8 Bolt.
