This Meade EXT90 computerized mount has some damage that I do not want to repair. The unit powers on and the motors turn. The battery compartment is clean.
The declination clutch was broken and I did glue and re-enforce it. The re-enforcement is 4 holes drilled and M3 machine screws glued in with steel epoxy. It is not pretty, but it isn't going to break there again. One of the attachment points to the scope was also broken. This was also glued and re-enforced with steel epoxy. See photo #3.
As I went to re-assemble it, I noticed two things that I did not want to address. First, the plastic stop tab has broken. It is missing so something will need to be done about it. Second, the main motor gear looks worn. See photo #4.
I intended to tear it down and part it out, but have not done so yet. I will list this until I can get around to doing that. So, if you are looking for a repairable mount or parts, get it before I have the time to tear it down.
This offering is for the mount only. No scope, controller, eyepieces, or anything else.
This is "as-is" with no return.
Thank you for looking
