We offer for your consideration this vintage Telescope mount. This came to us through an estate sale. We have no experience with this type of equipment so we apologize in advance for any mistakes we may have made in this listing.
This mount has no serial numbers, makers marks, or labels. But we found that, visually, it is almost an exact match to the TOWA 339 electric drive telescope mount. The only text to be found is located on the electric clock drive itself. Please check out the picture. Out Of curiosity, We plugged the electric clock drive in, and it works! The tripod legs are approximately 19 inches long.
The whole unit weighs approximately 10 pounds. The tripod is a bit dusty from its time in storage, but it is cleaning up well, the only issue We can see is a bit of pitting of the chrome on the legs. Oh, and there is a missing rubber end cap on one of the legs.

I have scanned through a few Astronomy groups and it seems these mounts are kinda rare. So if you are collector, this mount might be something of interest. If it can be cleaned up and be made to function as designed, even better.
