A handmade 1200

N. Foldager


A friend forwarded this add to me:

ForSale: Astro-Physics 1200 mount, handmade!!
This is 1 of the 10 handmade 1200 mounts produced in England prior
to production. Beautifully crafted from solid billets and stock, no
sandcasting. Includes High resolution encoders, current 9000
handcontroller, #18 counterweight, large head with Losmandy type

$6000 plus shipping

I wonder, what is that for a kind of AP 1200?
By Astro-Physics?
In England?

Would it be compatible with todays accessories?

Would it be recommendable (if in good condition)?

The price seems a high to me for a used mount.

Best regards,

Niels Foldager
