Looking for decent inexpensive goto mount

Hello all,

I have a need for a goto mount for a short tube, lightweight, 8" scope (about 15 lbs). I am not a CCD type operator, so my knowledge of all these types of mounts, price, and capabilities is limited. It doesn't need to be fancy or newest technology, as long as its easy to interface to a PC for rapid pointing to objects of my selection.

If anyone has an older mount which would fit my needs, and they could part with it for a "good price" (= real cheap, or free:), please let me know!

Thank you in advance,

Mike LMK
