Any simple tripod/mount with slo-mo controls

Hi,
I've got an ST80 OTA that I'd like to use as a simple visual-only scope and loaner for interested kids, but need a suitable tripod/mount. Anything like an AZ3, EQ3 or even simpler would do.
Happy with something that needs repairs. Anything considered.
Will pickup in Geelong/Surfcoast/Colac/Ballarat area or Melbourne CBD.
Thanks, Doug

Hi Doug,
I have a SW AZ3 with slow motion controls in super condition that came with a recently purchased refractor.
I want $100 for the mount but you would be up for postage from Lakes Entrance to Geelong. The postage for the tripod about $25 and a bit more for the spreader - $10 maybe.
Might be too much
Let me know

Hi Ron,
Thanks for that. It sounds like I've secured a AZ3 a bit closer to home (although I have a mate down your way). If that doesn't work out I'll get back to you as your's sounds good too
Many thanks, Doug

Thanks to all. I bought an AZ3 from Alfred in Melbourne and it looks like it will do the job really well. Cheers, Doug
