Welcome to the forum...

It seems this mount is no longer marketed in the USA.

You can either import a Merlin-branded one from Europe, or the Panogear-branded model from Kolor or SkiVR, or look at the newer larger heavier Celestron Sky-watcher Allview mount which is reported to be compatible with Papywizard:

Hi mediavets

Thanks for your prompt reply. Couple of questions,

1. Can this be setup with bluetooth dongle for use with Nokia 810 and Android Tablet?

2. Can you provide links to Orion TeleTrack vender in Europe?

Thanks

Kolor reported that they had tested a prototype with papytwizard and it worked fine - so I imagine that's a 'yes' but I have no personal experience of the Allview model.

I think it may be best that you contact the person who reported owning one in that forum therad I referenced in my previous post.

and Android Tablet?

I don't know but if it works with Papywizard it should work with the software that's in development for Android.

2. Can you provide links to Orion TeleTrack vender in Europe?

Here you are - it is marketed as the Merlin in Europe:
