To be fair there are nice mounts and then there are mounts made by Takahashi, this is such a pretty mount and on top of that the build quality is simply awesome!
I have used this mount personaly, it points, tracks and guides like a dream
Has been used in an observatory and as a travelling mount so has the battle scars to the paintwork to prove it, so not as pretty as it could be
- PC RS232 adapter
- ST4 Takahashi convertor and another ST4 cable
- Loadestar to Takahashi Guide cable
- Extra genuine counterweight with ugly black paint job
- Takahashi Luan Tripod
Unlike their contemporaries like the EQ6 which in my opinion is a very poor copy of this mount, these actually hold there stated carrying capacity of 20KG for visual use and they do it with some gusto. Japanese and quirky it may be but it is still without equal at this price point!
I would rather this be collected than delivered, to this end I would remove £60 if paid for and collected in person
