Developed a new Alt-Azimuth Mount for reflector telescope

I developed this new Alt-Azimuth Mount for reflector telescopes Each axis uses stainless roller bearings offering smooth movement on both axis. This mount is made of MS & SS components & weighs about 24 pounds without counter weights. Leveling pads will be installed on all 3 legs.  Lot of running around to complete the project in time,  i am quite happy with the performance.
