More product information
For a limited time, the G11 comes with the folding HD tripod for the same price as the mount with standard tripod. The industry-standard Losmandy G-11 is a rock solid visual and photographic tracking equatorial mount that can hold an instrument payload of up to 60 pounds. While not the most portable mount in the world, weighing in at 92 pounds with its 21 lb counterweight, it can generally be taken down and set up rather easily by one person, as the heaviest single component weighs only 36 lbs. This mount has excellent drive smoothness and accuracy, plus programmable periodic error correction, and is nicely suited for astrophotography.

A very good mount for its class. Periodic error on my mount is low. While the mount is heavy it disassembles to where it is not difficult to move by one person. The wide range of available plates makes the mount usable for most scopes. I have had no issues with my mount.
