Overhauled my Orion Versago III
I bought this mount head to strip for the slo-mo gear boxes to replace the somewhat worn ones on my larger Orion VersaGo III mount. As I suspected, they were identical, and a straight bolt-in. Maybe not the cheapest way to overhaul a VersaGo III, but certainly the easiest & quickest. The blue Vixen label can be pried out. The only issue I encountered was the need to grind down the set screw a bit on the alt handle, to allow straight overhead viewing; not a big issue at all.

I have an old Celestron tripod (ca 1981) that came with a C8/wedge. It has a hole in the middle of a flat top. Can this mount head attach to the Celestron tripod?
