Pentax Equatorial mount, either DS-2 or MS-2 EQ mount in good condition. Seldom comes up for sale
Mount: (I am not sure it is DS-2 or MS-2, most likely MS-2 that comes with 75EDHF scope)
Generally very good condition. It has built in polar scope. RA slo-mo cable doesn't seem to be original, Dec is original.
Defects: tripod tray attachment screw plastic head is broken (2 broken and 1 still intact, can replace with any thumb screws) Counter weight screw also the same, plastic cover crack (can replace with correct size thumb screw too) Minor paint lost at tripod hub where tripod legs are attached. Due to age, it has some minor user marks, stain etc (photo 6/7/8)
There is additional locking screws for tripod legs to prevent leg dislodge, you may remove easily out by unscrew out if you don't want ( I would suggest to leave it and it acts as double secure bolt/pin similar to Takahashi tripod)- 2nd last Photo
