Fullerscopes MkIV mount

Recommended Posts

My ancient (owned since the 1980s) Fullerscopes mount is for sale.  Hardly used over the last ten years as I prefer a dobsonian mount for my 10 inch and it is overkill for my 6 inch mak-newt.  I was intending to put a long focus refractor on it, but the permanent space in the garden is going to the 20 inch.  It comes with dual drives and a VFO with hand paddle, one counterweight and rings for a 10 inch , if required.  The mount is dusty, but has always been kept in a dry location. 

I have no idea what these old mounts are worth to people.  I will start off at £300, but am open to offers. 

Collection in person from mid Wales.

That looks like heaven Jonathan,  great mount in a room full of half finished pots :headbang:   we have the scope and rings for it but it's dob mounted atm and could not even begin to find the space for your mount, hope it goes somewhere nice.

Always wanted one of these and just my luck when I am downsizing one comes up.

Have you listed it on UKABS? There are always folks looking for these as they make superb base mounts for modernising.

Thanks for the appreciative comments. I have decided to keep it after all. In fact it is now being restored; the paint has been removed, worm wheels cleaned and brass polished. Unsure whether to respray with original black crackle or a shiny colour. I may even smooth and polish it to a high shine. All I need is a 6 inch f15 refractor! From for sale add to wanted add within a week.
