Initially I have the home made alt az that I use with the D&G refractor. It is a bit high but I can reduce that in time.

Recently acquired a TV-85. It's an older model (single speed focuser with compression ring) but in very good condition.

Mount looks very nice, followed the link from CN post that I found. I'll paste it here for you Price is around 100,000JPY? Any notes on shipping?
EDIT: That tripod looks unreal! Are you still making those?

Yeah I like it too. I have the heritage on a vixen porta 11 with nexus. It's a top little scope for the price.
