There's a complete motorised one in Chelmsford on Ebay at the moment. Not PF, offset :

Very nice. I wonder where they got that motorised mount as that's exactly what I am looking for for mine. The dish itself looks like it has 4 petals, that will make it much easier to transport than mine which is in two parts.

Almost worth bidding on the dish just to get the mount.

Go on, you know you want all that lovely control gear :) I am sure, given the dish's easy looking ability to be dismantled and transported, you could find a happy buyer for the dish itself :) Or have two dishes yourself, a fixed and a moveable one. A man can never have too many dishes.

I will wait and see, I expect the price will go up and collection is the main problem, but could be overcome. I also already have a slew ring rather similar to what it has, just not the metalwork to go with it.
