    Default What kind of a mount is this?

    This is the mount that came with my Celestron 4-1/2" (114mm) Newtonian Telescope-910mm focal length which is about/ at least 10 years old. I don't know if this mount was originally paired with the scope, but I suspect it is from a post on a BB long long ago.
    The patina is bronze and greenish. There is no polar scope, but it is possible to look through the bore. There was a tiny little bubble level on the side, but it has no fluid in it, and looks like it hasn't for years.

    It's a German Equatorial Mount (GEM). By the look of it - EQ3 model. In Celestron classification it will be CG4 Pretty good one for the telescope you are using it with, much better than the one that Celestron supplies with it now.
