A Powerhouse Mount! Review by Eric

This is an awesome mount, especially for the price. I use it with my 11 inch Celestron optical tube and have absolutely no problems. Would I recommend this for imaging? I'm no expert on that but I'd say for basic imaging and shorter term exposures, absolutely. Especially at lower magnifications and smaller optical tubes. There is a little vibration when focusing at high magnification. It settles quickly, but it's enough to wreck imaging. That being said don't let the naysayers fool you. Alignment is simple and extremely accurate if done properly. I can get objects from the solar system to deep sky DEAD center in a 17MM eyepiece doing a 2 two star alignment. The tracking is spot on. I've left objects in the eyepiece over 20 minutes and absolutely no noticeable movement. The hand controller is very easy to use and provides you with a nice database of various objects in the cosmos. The mount is surprisingly quiet when slewing and the two inch tripod legs make it very sturdy.

The only thing to be aware of that I can think of is this thing can get HEAVY depending on your optical tube size and counter weights. This isn't necessarily "grab-N-go" mount. But setup and take down is pretty quick and painless. Make sure to take the time to balance it so you don't wear the motors out, and I always level the mount BEFORE putting the tube on. Just use caution and take your time with it since it can get heavy. If you do that, trust me you won't be disappointed its performance. (Posted on 4/1/2016)
