Thanks so much for considering the Paramount ME II (with on-axis absolute encoders).

Bob Gillard:
What is the down payment,
None is required.

Bob Gillard:

We'll need to check on both, and get back to you.

Dorothy:

I just placed a credit card order for a ME II with encoders.  Will the base of this mount fit on the pier that my current old ME is attached to?  I also want to order a third counterweight, but I didn't do it on this order.

Dorothy:
Thank you for your response.

What type of down payment do you need for an order?  Do the counterweights of the older Paramount ME work on this mount also (I have two extra).  Also, do I need to order a mounting plate for the top?

As Daniel said:

Bob Gillard:

Not as normally equipped. The diameter of the counterweight shaft supplied with a Paramount ME was 1-1/2 inches, whereas that of the Paramount ME II is 1-7/8 inches. The optional 1.5" Paramount ME/ME II Counterweight Shaft could instead be installed on the ME II, which would then accept the same counterweights used with an ME. We could probably substitute the 1-1/2 inch shaft and counterweights with your ME II, should you desire that.

Bob Gillard:
Also, do I need to order a mounting plate for the top?

Do you mean the Paramount ME II Versa-Plate (to which an OTA can be mounted)? That's included with the ME II mount.

If you instead mean a base plate for mounting the ME II to a pier, the mounting hole pattern is the same as for the ME, so if you have a pier that accepts the ME, it should also accept the ME II (not simultaneously, of course).

Bob Gillard:
Will sales tax be added?

Not if the mount is shipped to an address outside Colorado.

Yes, the ME and ME II have the same foot print. 

Bob Gillard:

I will add the counterweight to your order and it can be paid when your order is ready to ship. 

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need further assistance with this order. 

Best, 

Dorothy
